There's just too much duplication of work in the whole Wiki, so I'd suggest to concentrate on bringing [[ABS - The Arch Build System]] up to date [[Talk:ABS - The Arch Build System|(see there)]] and make this more into a glossary article with some links.

Maybe replace the abs section with "Makepkg is used by ABS - The Arch Build System.", with links to the ABS pages?  That would reduce the duplication.

I don't use ABS, but I use makepkg.  I unpack the source to a sub-directory of my home, and run makepkg from there.

optimized package options

Just to double check: the CFLAGS of /etc/makepkg.conf is overwritten by the CFLAGS that can be found in the Makefile provided with the source. This makes it ineffective as soon as a Makefile is provided, is it correct? Should it be mentioned in this case?

Makefiles can just extend the environment's CFLAGS by not doing any explicit assignment, but using operators like ?= or += instead. See also [1]. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 12:11, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

upx

A feature to be aware of: do not be surprised if the UPX option does not compress your gcc binary because it only detects files that are of mime type 'application/x-executable' | 'application/x-dosexec' while gcc unless instructed otherwise would create by default a binary 'application/x-sharedlib'.
