1 word for you: namcap.

With this software, you can verify problems in the newly built
package. I like a lot the '-i' option. Archwiki has more information
about it Just as example, with namcap I saw that your package needs:

* depends=('libsm' 'libzip' 'file' 'gtk2')  # why you put lib32? No
need for this package.
* options=('!libtool')  # this removes useless *.la files of the package

Observation: please not the lib32 packages are not needed, unless the
PKGBUILD needs ONLY 32 bit libraries. that's not the case of this
package. ex: PCSX2 works only in 32 bit, so I need lib32-<libs> to use
it in Arch64.

Except for that, all good. And the PKGBUILD is very clean - I liked it :)
