Don't do it like that. This creates a .SRCINFO from the first PKGBUILD
of the package and doesn't update the file for later commits anymore.
So your .SRCINFO is outdated in all following commits.

The problem was in one of the scripts linked in the wiki but is fixed
there, too.

So don't test for .SRCINFO, *always* run mksrcinfo.
