Just a guess: How did you try to define the flag?  If it doesn't exist
(and has been exported before) you have to export it for make to pick it
up from the environment.  Setting the variable only makes it available
in the current script (and a PKGBUILD is just a bash script setting
well-known variables and using some predefined functions).
