Thanks, got the PKGBUILD working on Mac OS X with some small modifications.

Found a bug with the -p <buildscript> flag, if you set this option it
will get overriden in makepkg when sourcing the config file, on line

# Source the config file; fail if it is not found
if [ -r "$MAKEPKG_CONF" ]; then
	source "$MAKEPKG_CONF"

Another small bug, on line 1500, if the BUILDSCRIPT filename contains
whitespace it will fail:
if [ -z $BUILDSCRIPT ]; then

should be quoted like this:
if [ -z "$BUILDSCRIPT" ]; then
