Yes, that's correct.
I start with the sources and a PKGBUILD-template from another project.

So I can use the build mechanism from the original sources,
and then use elf2pkgs and/or namcap and it gives me the pkgnames?
These then I can put into the PKGBUILD and things should work.

If this is the recipe, i will try it...
