\fBmakepkg\fP is a script to automate the building of packages. All it needs is
a build-capable Linux platform and a custom build script for each package you
-wish to build (known as a \fB\*(PB\fP). The advantage to a script-based build
-is that the work is only done once. Once you have the build script for a
-package, makepkg will do the rest: download and validate source files, check
-dependencies, configure the build-time settings, build the package, install the
-package into a temporary root, make customizations, generate meta-info, and
-package the whole thing up for \fBpacman\fP to use.
