Some comments about the PKGBUILD:

You should not be doing anything in $_gitname" in the $startdir". If the user
sets the SRCDEST variable in makepkg.conf then it will not be there. In
addition, that git repo should not be touched during the build. The repo is
cloned in $srcdir" and that is where building should occur.

Please replace
>cd $_gitname
>cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"

and likewise for "cd $_gitname/build".

Note the quotation marks around $srcdir. The are important.
