I had a quick skim of your PKGBUILDs in the AUR.  A couple of comments:

1) do not use specific sourceforge mirrors;  use 
downloads.sourceforge.net instead (e.g. pidgin-festival)
2) you should use srcdir/pkgdir instead of startdir/  but I notice some 
PKGBUILDs do this so maybe it is is transition thing.
3) you can use "install -Dm" instead of "install -d" followed by 
"install -m"

Other than that, you PKGBUILDs all look fine.  I didn't notice anything 
very complicated in my quick skim through (no patching etc).

Good luck,
