Variables/noextract about zip?
Isn't this information outdated? It seems bsdtar can now perfectly handle zip-files.

Installing the package
It might be helpful for beginners to know how to install the package after building it. Maybe it should explicity mentioned that one can install it with sudo pacman -U yourpackage.pkg.tar.??
where ?? can be xz, gz or something else.
One of the two links is redundant, is the same mentioned here Tip: A prototype .install is provided at /usr/share/pacman/proto.install. the second one should be added to proto installed by pacman package.
