 delete them. It's your work.
 Not by default, but if you call makepkg with
 the -c flag, it will
 perform a clean-up of
 those temp directories.

OK, I see that option:  -c, --clean      Clean up work files after build

Anyway, I should have known better than to ask that question....I have built quite a few AUR packages locally and I always see the pkg and src dirs in along with the .pkg.tar.xz file, etc.; all the time..... when I go to pacman -U to install.

So the answer to that question was pretty obvious; just got confused there for a minute. I do need to read up more on how $SRCDEST , $PKGDIR and $SRCDIR are defined and work together, etc.  (Just a matter of finding the right man page sections....)
