What about this :

DLAGENTS=('protocol::/path/to/command [options]' …)

    Sets the download agents used to fetch source files specified with
a URL in the PKGBUILD(5) file. Options can be specified for each
command as well, and any protocol can have a download agent. Several
examples are provided in the default makepkg.conf.
    If present, instances of %u will be replaced with the download
URL. Otherwise, the download URL will be placed on the end of the
command. If present, instances of %o will be replaced with the local
filename, plus a ".part" extension, which allows to do file resumes
