Thank you very much about the PKGBUILD notes. I removed the cruft, added signatures, and updkgsums will make things easier as well!

A few minor things about the PKGBuild.
THe || return 1 are a thing from the past. Those should be removed
You have two md5sums entries. To update md5sums it's easier to use updpkgsums which comes with pacman.
Sed lines should be placed into a prepare() function.

And upstream offers pgp signatures for the tarballs. So those could be downloaded too and the key that signed it added in a validpgpkeys=() array to offer additional checkup
