Currently, this does not work because conmon is not properly pulled/initialized.

I just added

( cd "$srcdir/$_pkgname" && git submodule update --init )

as the first line in prepare(). This did the trick.

Please remove if inappropriate, but several attempts with this pkg build didn't work.

This did:

git clone
cd singularity
git checkout v3.9.6
make -C builddir
sudo make -C builddir install
singularity --version
I'd rather it was pkg managed ofc.

checking: conmon source... no

$ sudo pacman -Ss conmon community/conmon 1:2.1.0-1 [installed]

Hi, hpcng and sylabs forks of Singularity have officially diverged: I would recommend relying on the hpcng upstream, as the singularity-container package in the official repos does.
