PKGBUILD must be split into build() and package() to build with makepkg 4.1

I've a problem. I'm using pacman-notifier for a long time now. But for a couple of days every time I'm trying to start pacman-notifier, I get this trace:

$ pacman-notifier
/usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:110:in `require': cannot load such file -- RNotify (LoadError)

from /usr/lib/ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:45:in `require'
from /usr/bin/pacman-notifier:3:in `<main>'

Something is wrong here with the RNotify library. Is anybody able to point me in the right direction for this?

ruby-pkgconfig is still missing as dependency.

additionaly I get a certificate problem (should probably rather be fixed by github)

ERROR: certificate common name “*” doesn’t match requested host name “”.
To connect to insecurely, use ‘--no-check-certificate’.

to get around I changed the download url to https instead of http in the PKGBUILD.
