Hello Allan,

i've tested the script and found some bugs:

The sourcing of makepkg.conf is in a wrong location (far to late).
If you display the usage via --help you get no PKGBUILD mentioned in
usages output. If you specify another buildscript via -p you get that
mentioned in usage but it gets overwritten by the contents of
makepkg.conf when it gets sourced in later before the actual build is

If you give -c to makepkg the pkgdirs of the splitpackages don't get

But the actual build and logging went fine, thank you :)

Hope that helps,
