If you need some easy way to install from AUR, then just use something 
like yaourt. Such tools use the header information to find all needed 
PKGBUILD's on AUR and compile them all in a queue to get the package, 
you want, installed.

It is not the job of one individual PKGBUILD to be self-contained. One 
PKGBUILD will build one package and just references its dependencies.
