The new PKGBUILD & install file are much better now. The package is no 
longer empty. I was a bit stumped on getting oh-my-zsh installed 
correctly because I was originally under the impression that I needed to 
/make &&/ /make DESTDIR=$pkgdir install /in order to not have an empty 
package. However, per the install docs on the main repository 
<https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh> page, we only need to ensure 
the "/oh-my-zsh"/ directory be hidden in the user's $HOME.

 From the oh-my-zsh repository: /"*NOTE*: If you already have a ~/.zshrc 
file, you should back it up. |cp ~/.zshrc ~/.zshrc.orig| in case you 
want to go back to your original settings. /|/cp 
~/.oh-my-zsh/templates/zshrc.zsh-template ~/.zshrc". /

Thanks for the very helpful input Evangelos & Eric!
