the prototype has a little problem in case you give -L option to makepkg
as it is now:
As makepkg pipes the output of the build-function into tee, the
build-function gets executed in a sub-shell. Any changes of variables in
context of main-shell from inside build-function will not work in that
case. This leads to that we have to set the values of all
split-package-variables outside of the respective build-functions.
