Just like Baho says, when you are building in a chroot (which you must if your
packages will be used by someone other than you), then there is no way to pass
custom parameters to makepkg:

  I set up a chroot specifically for Trinity building and start with Qt3/TQt3
and progress using:

sudo makechrootpkg -r $CHROOT -u

  or just

sudo makechrootpkg -r $CHROOT  (to avoid the pacman -Syu call)

  then manually install the packages:

sudo makechrootpkg -r $CHROOT -I tde-package.tar.xz

  then I manually copy the file to the $CHROOT/root/repo and do a repo-add to
update the repo.

  If something significant changes in a package, then I rebuild the effected
package and start again with a fresh cleaned $CHROOT and rebuild from that point
on with the [local] repo providing all the dependencies needed.
