Nitpicky, I know, but license is an array, and should have parentheses 
around it.

Don't use $startdir, please. Use $srcdir instead of $startdir/src.

The "|| return 1" does nothing; makepkg will exit if any command fails 
Also, I don't see it necessary to explicitly call /usr/bin/make, just 
make will work fine.

Similar to above, $pkgdir is standard, while $startdir/pkg is obsolete.
