It's already part of the source, and it is a "bluez-util" so belongs in this package really. It's used for testing/configuring/reading data from BT4 LE devices like heart rate monitors etc.

Steps to fix:

Ref - https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ga/gatttool/PKGBUILD
It should be a one-liner:

install -vDm755 attrib/gatttool "${pkgdir}/usr/bin/gatttool"
This task depends upon

The "duplicate" should never have been closed. "AndyRTR" didn't bother to read the git commit he linked to - the *plugin* is no longer required, but (quoted): "Note that GATT utility (gatttool) configuration item was moved to Makefile.tools". Please re-open as this is still a valid, maintained, and required program.
