It appears that you're using the PKGBUILD as a script that installs
and configures oh-my-zsh for the current user. No files are copied
into the actual package directory ($pkgdir), so you end up with an
empty package. As you understand, this is incorrect behavior. Also
note that while a package is being built, it should never create or
modify files inside the user's home directory (or anywhere outside of
$startdir for that matter).

I'd lose the ASCII art and the "oh-my-zsh is now installed" line, for
the sake of keeping the pacman log as clean as possible. In addition,
the "chsh -s /usr/bin/env zsh" line is incorrect; zsh is interpreted
as a separate argument.
