* patch -Np0 -i ../../cgmail.patch

Just reference "$srcdir/cgmail.patch" (with quotes) so you don't need to
worry about where you are in the source tree.

Would also be nice if you could give the patch a more useful name so as
to actually describe what it might do/fix. At minimum, add a comment.
PKGBUILDs should as much documentation as they are build recipes.

* for file in $(find....)

This is always bad and, moreover, wrong. Just use find to invoke sed.

  find . -type f -name '*.py' -exec sed -i <program> {} +

more info:

* ./waf configure --prefix=/usr

Call 'python2 ./waf' instead of bothering with changing the shebangs.
