The usual way to deal with such sources is to list it as e.g.
local://$pkgname-$pkgver.tgz and expect the user to download it manually.

Note that simply listing the source as $pkgname-$pkgver.tgz means the
AUR submission process will block your upload, since sources without a
download method must be included in the AUR commit (to be downloaded
alongside the PKGBUILD).


As Bruno said, you have lots of junk variables; if you're not using
them, simply don't include them at all. :)

Given that the pkgdesc references a C API for something, and it uses
CMake and depends on pcre... I am guessing the arch should not be:
arch=('any') -- which refers to packages that don't include
platform-specific files like ELF binaries -- and should in fact be:
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
