Thanks to all of you, those are my first packages as you should know and
I'm using the proto of /usr/share/pacman to make the pkgbuild, so I'm using
those arrays I think I can use for any package, but I didn't know that ()
will confuse makepkg (so sensitive...), I'll try to correct it.

The md5sums in the pastebin is different because it has been changing
between two different outputs anytime I did makepkg -g, but even now that
it is not changing, and the makepkg -g output is ever the same, it stills
not accepting it.

Jesse, I'll try then to use that PKGBUILD, I looked for it, because I
suposed it should exist, but as I didn't find it, I downloaded the package
and modified the .PKGINFO file. Thanks for your help with that PKGBUILD. I
know archlinux is a non libre system, and that's not bad at all because,
for example, flash it's very usefull nowadays, because gnash has a lot of
things to improve to be a serious subtitute, but, ever I can, I try to use
free software (if it has not great problems, like gnash taking my earlier
example), and Iceweasel with iceweasel-sync it's as good and fast as
firefox, so... I liked it and thought about submitting it :)
