1. You don't need to worry about pkgconfig; it's part of a package 
called core/pkg-config, which is part of [base-devel], which anyone 
using the AUR should have installed.
2. Here's [1] a slightly "fixed" example PKGBUILD; you would still have 
to somehow deal with the compilation problems, but at least this script 
doesn't prompt you for the editor (due to the --no-edit flag). Also, 
just remember to quote all your $pkgdir and $srcdir vars.
