It's a PKGBUILD for the development version of a software, and there
is no such thing as "automatic" because changes happen anytime and
everytime, and as such it is best to keep a local copy of the
buildscripts and makepkg as and when the need is felt. If the
complaint is from an unsupported pacman wrapper's viewpoint, then you
can for eg. cron a yaourt -S every night.

That is, of course, provided the buildscripts continue to work.
