Looking the PKGBUILD I would propose changing that horrible to read case
clutter to few ifs like this. Out kernel's are all at version 3 so no
need for the 2.6 version eather:

 if [ "$_dvbtype" = "c" ]; then 
    if [ "$CARCH" = "i686" ]; then
  elif [ "$_dvbtype" = "s2" ]; then
    if [ "$CARCH" = "i686" ];then

Also lookin  ath the make files and stuff reveal the horrifyingness and
idiotism of this drivers packager/writer. The whole linux v4l is
included in the tarball and build by default, not to mention that it is
installed too. Owerwriting our webcam and video capture card driver
stack from some random version of kernel it totally out of order. So
instead of doing make install, copy only the tbs drivers by hand from
there. Even better hack and slash the make files to not even build all
those 5 gazillion other drivers.
