I just discovered, the package "qtscrob" actually provides the cli version! Didn't see that! So you should put qtscrob into conflicts=(qtscrob).

Just as an addition, you don't have to put all this unused variables into the PKGBUILD! As an example, here's my version of qtscrob-cli

pkgdesc="A tool for submitting .scrobbler.log from portable players to Last.fm"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('curl' 'libmtp')

build() {
  cd ${srcdir}/${_realname}-${pkgver}/src/cli
  make || return 1
  make prefix="" DESTDIR="${pkgdir}/usr" install

You might want to shorten yours a little bit as well, improves its readability. Feel free to use mine as a sample.
