Failure is unrelated and comes from bash attempting to run the line:
"--enable-ldap" as a command instead of an option to the configure
command. Please don't confused errors running the build() function, for
errors checking out the sources.

But the PKGBUILD is at least getting the correct version of the gtk3
branch, unlike you --- in other words, the #branch=gtk3 notation is
designed to accurately do exactly "what it says on the label", whereas
humans are error-prone and sometimes forget to switch from the master
branch to the gtk3 branch.
