OK, got all of that, thanks again for feedback and guidance.

Oh, and I did read the man pages of makepkg and pacman maybe not all of the data but whatever I could find that applied to my questions but it's always good to double check my understanding (or misunderstanding, as the case may be), since I'm still learning.  I always do that before posting but again, not so obvious at times.

I think I'm pretty much ready to go here and will proceed to upload soon.
