@jstjohn: Thanks for the suggestions! This was one of my first PKGBUILDs...(actually, I wasn't even using Arch Linux then) :D

You can remove the following from the PKGBUILD since they are unnecessary.
makedepends=('make' 'gawk') :: These two packages are in 'base-devel' and 'base', both of which are assumed to be installed on all systems (from the PKGBUILD wiki article)
optdepends=() :: Empty, so may as well remove it.
conflicts=() :: Empty, so may as well remove it.
provides=('firmware-addon-dell') :: The PKGBUILD wiki articles states that the package name should not be in the provides() array.

Dell's entire Linux site is down right now, so the install will fail.
