My point, supporting the discussion so far, was that building hugo from
source is not necessary to get the latest release in advance of the
package being updated. Download it, make it executable, run it.

Nowhere did I say that using the existing PKGBUILD and building the
package locally was a bad idea. However, it's certainly not necessary.
