Although SRCINFO does have pkgbase=llvm35 in it, that's not in the 
PKGBUILD. I doubt that's the cause of the issue, but try adding pkgbase 
explicitly to PKGBUILD.

I think AUR uses a blacklist to prevent duplicates with offical repos, 
maybe that blacklist needs updating ?

AUR has llvm33 , llvm38, llvm39, llvm4 and llvm 5 . Maybe your packages 
can use one of those ?
