Sorry to say, but I found quite a few things from a very quick look:

- errors in licenses. This is an array and you need to install custom
licenses in /usr/share/licenses/$pkgname
- you need to include patches and such in the source array
- Do not introduce new variables into your PKGBUILD build scripts,
unless the package cannot be built without doing so. Further some of
them are already defined by a variable so why creating a new one? I
really have trouble reading it.
- what is up with the use of pushd and popd? There is clearly no use
in using those.

What else can I say...I still think 8 packages is not enough as I
already indicated in a previous thread.
