I was running into a build error during the package step:

[125/125] Linking C executable test/test95
==> Starting check()...
==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting package()...
ninja: error: unknown target 'DESTDIR=/home/jasonc/.cache/paru/clone/paho-mqtt-c/pkg/paho-mqtt-c'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
error: failed to build 'paho-mqtt-c-1.3.12-1':

It looks like the makefile was treating DESTDIR=... as a target. Note I am using ninja makefile generator for cmake by default. This issue does not exist for normal unix makefiles.

This patch to the PKGBUILD fixed the issue for me and works with both ninja and unix makefiles:
