This is now fixed. Neither SRCDEST or PKGDEST are now needed by
default; this will result in both the source and package ending up in
the build directory.

Hmmm. Why did it fall through to the bunzip2 call? I built the medit
package locally and it caught just fine with the application/x-tar
call. I wonder if it had something to do with the first error... When
our next RC comes out, I'd say give it another try. The PKGBUILD will
need modifying a bit, btw- the options array format has changed as
noted here <http://www.archlinux.org/pipermail/pacman-dev/2007-February/001269.html>.
