It's good that you're using a clean root to develop the package but the package should still be installable with vanilla makepkg.

I attempted my suggested changes using makechrootpkg and they failed so here are the updated versions that work in both the chroot and vanilla makepkg:

I don't know how you feel about the GOPATH patch but it's my opinion that PKGBUILD should make as few assumptions as possible about the users setup. Setting GOPATH avoids assuming that GOPATH is set or that ~/go exists. It also has the added effect of not modifying the users actual go environment if it exists. That's a pro in my option but that's probably subjective.

Thanks for the feedback cheezsteak ! Some context: - the way I build pkgs locally ( including pms-git ) is by using the systemd-nspawn chroot functionality provided by the arch devtools.

This means that pkgs always build in a clean(pristine) environment without any need to interfere/interact with your local workstation GOPATH or any other local pkg. PKGBUILD doesn't assume anything about your GOPATH, "$HOME/go" is the default GOPATH used by the go build tool-chain. pms-git builds fine in this way.

See the wiki for docs -

This package fails to build with makepkg. I noticed two errors. $BUILDDIR/${pkgname} evaluates to "pms-git/pms-git" which is wrong if you're building from inside pms-git. Please replace with just $BUILDDIR.

Also PKGBUILD assumes $HOME/go as $GOPATH instead of just using $GOPATH.

I can provide git patches for both if you need them.
