I see good reasons for both choices.
For files :
 - which use the same pattern
 - distribution-specific
 - that may need to be maintained or adapted to one's system
is seems logical to keep the generation system available in the source package.
And for a case that simple, it seems useless to bundle a bash script
next to the PKGBUILD... Of course, it would make more sense for 5+
scripts instead of 3! (but I now have a code snippet I may reuse)

Please provide your opinion :)
