I haven't looked in detail, just a couple of comments:

- If the GTK2 and GTK3 versions are built from the same source, then a split 
GTK2/GTK3 package is the way to go. Having separate PKGBUILDs for each 
version just doubles the maintenance work for no good reason (every fix and 
update would need to be applied twice).
- You should remove the install files that run commands already handled by 
hooks. See https://www.archlinux.org/todo/hooks-part-1/
