Replaced "$startdir/pkg" by "$pkgdir" as suggested. Thank you for your help, mrk3004

startdir contains the absolute path to the directory where the PKGBUILD file is located. This variable used to be used in combination with /src or /pkg postfixes, but the use of srcdir and pkgdir variables is the modern method. $startdir/src is not guaranteed to be the same as $srcdir, and likewise for $pkgdir. Use of this variable is deprecated and strongly discouraged.

pkgdir points to the directory where makepkg bundles the installed package, which becomes the root directory of your built package.

Replace $startdir with $pkgdir fix this.
