The error message is simple, but the meaning is not that
straightforward: AUR can miss the build function when makepkg has no
problem, e.g. in case of a bug in bash-type variable replacements....
I'm not saying that it is the case for this PKGBUILD, but wouldn't be
the first bug like this, as much as I remember.

Do .gz attachments work on this list? If they do, please attach the
compressed faulty PKGBUILD.
