Thanks for the hint. Apparently the documentation [1] about the PREFIX is wrong then.
Concerning your previous comment, which you deleted, I am very interested in any suggestion about improving the PKGBUILD. However using roughly the same PKGBUILD as the bup package is unfortunately not possible since the build function would error out.

Add PREFIX='/usr/' to package make invocation to move bup form /usr/local to /usr.

Hi, I am the new maintainer and will update the package from now on. The mentioned errors should be fixed and the package should work just fine (tested on two computers).

The error (/usr/bin/makepkg: eval: line 2225: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `)') is due to the comment inside the options=() array. If you delete the comment or move it down one line (after the ')'), it works just fine.

Arch Linux is increasingly a pile of poo.

makepkg seems to have problems parsing/ignoring the parentheses in the comment of the PGKBUILD-options.

/usr/bin/makepkg: eval: line 2225: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `)'

Updated. Thanks

Could you please add !makeflags to the PGKBUILD-options?
I have MAKEFLAGS="-j8" in /etc/makepkg.conf and 'make test' fails.

After a lot of debugging I found that it is a race condition with
test -e t/tmp || mkdir t/tmp
in line 84 and 88 in the Makefile. 'make test' fails with
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘t/tmp’: File exists

Thanks, rakoo.

There's a sed missing in t/ Here's a diff for it:
