You need to fix the PKGBUILD script, it doesn't know where to get the Nightly Binary builds, and expects it to be in the download source. So fix the URL source.

Download links for Nightly binary builds are now fetched from instead of GitHub.

Trying to use makepkg with nightly sources is a catastrophe, but this is the best option we have. You might see the curl commands getting executed multiple times, but should be fixed now

This works; although the early on calling of the pkgver function seems to be a rather ugly hack. I didn't manage to get it working otherwise.

Build fails with:

@kIERO Should be fixed now

Thanks @kIERO, will have a look later!
