It would be nice to have an split package for handbrake, because some people only use the CLI version. I have a PKGBUILD attached wich splits handbrake in handbrake-gtk and handbrake-cli. It's my first splitting of a package so it might contain errors, ran namcap on the pkg.tar.gz and the PKGBUILD. The install file is exact the same as the one from the handbrake package.

This task depends upon

to be sure that hanbrake-gtk will use the exact version for cli replace 'handbrake-cli' with "handbrake-cli=$pkgver"

can this be implemented/closed?

Here's a little bit of a better solution. Addressing jelly's solution:

1) You can't override makedepends for each package
2) You don't have to build handbrake twice. Just build it as before and copy the CLI binary.

Also, I decided to leave the package 'handbrake' as a cli and gui package and then have a cli only package called 'handbrake-cli'
