It may be doable but it is not easy. someone would have to write a tool
that does something like what is done by cabal2arch for haskell packages
for emacs lisp packages. No-one has written such a tool yet.

As far as I understand the process, package.el loads e single emacs lisp
file from git://git.savannah.gnu.org/emacs/elpa.git which takes care for
the rest, i.e. fetching stuff from sourceforge, installing them locally
in a subdirectory of the user's home directory and integrating them into
the emacs infrastructure. Repeating these steps in bash for makepkg is
