Every time I use an AUR helper (in my case is yaourt) to do a update checking I would get a update message of x11fs-git, even there's no new commits in the upstream.

makepkg would automatically generate the latest version number if there's a pkgver() function in the PKGBUILD and no need to set a special value to pkgver. Keeping the value's format of pkgver as same as the one pkgver() generated is what packagers normally do.

pkgver=1 tells makepkg to execute a function that takes the package number from the git repo. it's normal

Using pkgver=1 in PKGBUILD looks odd for a git package. Users will keep getting 'update available' messages this way as 1 is considered > r70.9ea1117.. Would you please consider going back to the former pkgver format (pkgver=r70.9ea1117)?

Done.

x11fs's Makefile now respects $DESTDIR. Please update the PKGBUILD to reflect that :)
