I had a quick look on some of your packages. They are formally well
written IMHO.

4l:  Dependency to gcc is not needed, it is in base-devel, and you
have a mkdir -p which should be a install -d

You can consider to replace $startdir/src with $srcdir and
$startdir/pkg with $pkgdir in some PKGBUILDS.

But that are minor issues.

Can you please explain what EDA and GPGPU means? I did a little
googling, but the pages I found go far beyond my skills in computer
science. Do you have some projects for packaging in mind in that

Regards Stefan
