[aur-general] PKGBUILD: depends vs. makedepends and namcap warning

Right :) After struggling with the gcc version on some older Mint
system, I obviously failed to clear my mind towards rolling release^^

Now, here are my first PKGBUILDs together with a review request.
Unfortunately, there are 11 of them at once, because the upstream
project is subdivided into modules and they optionally depend on
external libraries which also weren't in the AUR.


The individual PKDBUILDs don't differ much, so if someone has a look at
one of them, I can probably transfer hints and corrections to the other

Thanks in advance,
