Hi Doug,

a few other nitpicky comments:

- doing `unset CFLAGS` *after* make looks pointless, especially given that
  you also have !buildflags in your options=()
- "xen::git+git://" looks redundant, just "git://" will suffice (because
  the name of the repository is already "xen")
- messages with lots of "====" seem awkward -- makepkg already highlights messages;
  you may try to use "msg2" instead of "msg" to have them in different color
- are you sure that exports from package() have effect on build()? I'd rather
  create a separate function and call it from build() and maybe package()

Otherwise, the PKGBUILD is pretty good AFAICS.
