Use of $SRCDEST by some tool like pacaur, and how main repos works: all
sources for all packages are stored together. So any other packages with
"v1.2.0.tar.gz" source will be in conflict. To fix this, your source
array should do something like that:

I’ll check what Doug meant in my forthcoming review.

I didn’t do my review yet, but if they are things to be done to “fix
make install”, they probably should be in the package function, not the
install file. I’ll come back to you later today regarding this, once
I’ll had the time to review your packages (currently at work).

Keep tuned,
