You're missing 'wayland-protocols' in makedepends, thus the build fails in a clean chroot. And 'libmpdclient' in checkdepends (produce :

>>> MALLOC_PERTURB_=193 /build/yambar-wayland/src/yambar/build/yambar -C -c /build/yambar-wayland/src/yambar/test/full-conf-good.yml

hello, can't run this program, at least with cpu module

$ yambar
 err: plugin.c:286: module: cpu: dlopen: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 err: config-verify.c:366: 13:6: bar.right: invalid module name: cpu


$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/yambar yambar
info: fcft.c:338: fcft: 3.1.5 +graphemes +runs +svg(nanosvg) -assertions
info: fcft.c:377: fontconfig: 2.14.2, freetype: 2.13.0, harfbuzz: 7.1.0, utf8proc: 2.8.0 (Unicode 15.0.0)

I think the proper fix is to write

# echo /usr/lib/yambar > /etc/

dovecot does exactly that, for example

$srcdir needs to be quoted if you use it in a PKGBUILD. Or you can just not use it since all functions start from $srcdir anyway

It also needs to conflict with and provide yambar
