As David said, if you have your deps built and in a repository that your
local pacman instance points to, it will work. Alternatively, if you
want a quicker / hackier way, you can do it like this:

extra-x86_64-build -- -I ~/aur/cache/foo.pkg.tar.xz -I ~/aur/cache/bar.pkg.tar.xz

This will install the foo and bar packages into the buildroot before
building. You just need to build your deps in order, starting with the
ones that don't need any other AUR packages.
