Rather sparse information, but here is my guess about what is happening: You build the packages and want to install the bemenu-git-$PKGVER-$ARCH.pkg.tar.zst package but didn't succeed.
In general this is not a problem with the packages itself. But there are various ways for preventing this chueewowee.
If makepkg is used on this PKGBUILD it will create 4 packages. If you're using pacman to install those afterwards, you need to install/specify the renderer package in question alongside. Or install it first

# pacman -U bemenu-git-0.6.14.r9.g8e2fd06-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst bemenu-wayland-0.6.14.r9.g8e2fd06-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst


# pacman -U bemenu-wayland-0.6.14.r9.g8e2fd06-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
# pacman -U bemenu-git-0.6.14.r9.g8e2fd06-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Without the renderer package it will check your local pacman database and there the dep cannot be satisfied.
Secondly you could maybe use the -i option of makepkg. Downside of this solution: It will install all 4 packages. The unwanted ones need to be uninstalled by hand.
And finally the most complicated but most beneficial method: You could create a local repo on your machine (or wherever) which gets tracked by pacman. See the Arch wiki for more information

Error to report:

-> Could not find all required packages: bemenu-renderer-git (Wanted by: bemenu-git)

Well... now we can see what happens if one decides: "Ah, it's fine. I can skip building in a clean chroot" :D Building works if bemenu is already installed...
In regards on the comment with users/aur pkg managers. Those are unsupported and I only need to care about makepkg.
If you have a patch available, we can talk about it. And later the day I will look again at this mess..

screw it, even community packaged wrong, it should ask for install wayland/ncurses/x11.

this package also wrong as it should depends on wayland/ncurses/x11 and let users/aur pkg managers to install one of them.

where is "bemenu-renderer-git"? can't build this package.

Will later update this PKGBUILD. I plan to closely follow the PKGBUILD from the repo, which means split packages.
Voices against such a change? Please with reasons :)

I have triggered this package to become orphaned, so a new volunteer can adopt it and update it.

Dunno if this ever worked for you but for me it just can't find the renderers due to misused PREFIX. Should be

 build() {
   35     cd "$_pkgname"
~  36     make PREFIX="/usr"
   37 }
   39 package_bemenu-git() {
   40     cd "$_pkgname"
~  41     make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" PREFIX="/usr" install
+  42     make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" PREFIX="/usr" install-renderers
   43 }

wayland-protocols should be in makedepends not optdepends. We only need it at compile time.

Seems like missing makedepends wayland-protocols
