Arch equivalent for "Slacker" makepkg or src2pkg


How do I make a package from something that I have compiled, yet is is not in AUR...?

Sort of ./configure --prefix=~/build/usr/local, make, make install, how do I grab the contents of build to turn them into an installable Arch package, like I do with Slackware makepkg or src2pkg/trackinstall...?

Check out the wiki for how to create a PKGBUILD. Basically the configure and all the install commands should go into the build() function. ;-)

Yup, everything you need is in the Wiki. Arch PKGBUILDs are not dissimilar to slackbuilds or ebuilds. (I personally think they are more straightforward than slackbuilds, though.)
