Details

Description:
Looks like noextract option inside PKGBUILD prevents that file from being softlinked into ${srcdir} and thus the need to use ${SRCDEST} to access it.
As an example of this try chromium-dev package.

Without noextract it is symlinked, with noextract it isn't.

Maybe this is a feature?

Additional info:
* package version(s)

with pacman(package) it works correctly though. With pacman-git(package) doesn't.

pacman-git version currently is:
Tested with: Pacman v4.1.2-406-g3e19-dirty - libalpm v8.0.2

* config and/or log files etc.
tested with pacman(package)'s makepkg.conf and pacman.conf and also with my own.

Steps to reproduce:
1. yaourt -S chromium-dev
2. put
echo `pwd`
ls -la
at the beginning of prepare function
3. proceed with build, notice it fails soon after downloading that 200+ MB file

commenting out the noextract= line will symlink and also extract that tar.xz file
This task depends upon

oh great now I see this, oops:
Do NOT report bugs when a package is ... in Unsupported
pacman-git fits that category

pacman happens to be special...

Seems that 2f7e92ad045fb276 rather deliberately changed this. I'll let Allan decide if this is WAI or not.

I'd say that is a bug...

I can put together a fix for this, but I'm going to wait until the current backlog of patches is cleared out (specifically my arch-specific branch as well as the pending "don't eval dlcmd" patch).
