They look very good. A couple of really minor issues is omitting to 
append " || return 1" to the end of `patch' commands (this is necessary 
for commands that are important to the build and might fail) and 
utilizing mv/cp/mkdir instead of the more safe `install'. The latter may 
be seen as a mainly cosmetic change, but can prevent permission problems 
caused by non-standard umask setting.

Additionally, in case you don't know about it, "namcap" is a utility 
that points out common mistakes found in packages and PKGBUILDs. It's 
located in the [extra] repo.
