I was able to build and package commit 9c049e2 by applying the following changes to the PKGBUILD:

If you improve the PKGBUILD please add the following dependencies to this package, as they (and probably more) are strictly required:

which python-yaml python-simplejson

I personally have concerns about the relative path towards the quicklogic-plugins-repository, but that is not the problem of this particular pkgbuild, but rather of the underlying repository.

However, I was not yet able to verify f4pga after installation, due to a bug that has already been reported to the authors.
