Please add 'git' to makedepends.

@Δ: mkdir issue: if a user builds with a partially populated srcdir, they should actually not expect anything to work. Cleaning up your stage before rebuilding is a minimal requirement if you are not building in a clean chroot. Artificially splitting that out to prepare() is possible but by no means necessary. A provides only makes sense, if other software depends on this. Since aqemu is an end-user software and nothing depends on it, it is pointless. For the different upstream from the other package, see comment there.

Can you add a provides=("aqemu=${pkgver}")?

Thanks for maintaining!

mkdir builddir should be in prepare() I think.

Also consider changing it to mkdir -p builddir in order to not fail when it is already there (e.g. from a previous makepkg run).

Thanks for maintaining!

The AUR package aqemu seems to be more up to date than this -git-package with respect to $pkgver/ pkgver(). They use a different source.

Maybe the other source is more up to date? Which one is official?

Ninja is required to build this software.

Example how to build using meson/ninja:

meson builddir
cd builddir

Fixed and tested PKGBUILD:

pkgdesc="QEMU GUI written in Qt (Qt5 rewrite)"
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('qemu' 'qt5-base' 'libvncserver')
makedepends=('meson' 'ninja' 'qt5-base')

pkgver() {
    cd "$srcdir/aqemu"
    git describe --long | sed 's/\([^-]*-g\)/r\1/;s/-/./g'

build() {
    cd "$srcdir/aqemu"
    mkdir builddir
    cd builddir
    meson --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc

package() {
    cd "$srcdir/aqemu"
    cd builddir 
    DESTDIR="$pkgdir" ninja install

@smit_17: vcs-packages don't receive updates via AUR, the version shown here does not reflect the version you get when building the package. It reflects the version it was tested against when the PKGBUILD was last updated. As a user, you are responsible for VCS package updates yourself.

I thing one should use branch as it fixes major bug at the time of this comment

A maintainer tag is missing. Packages which are stated as runtime dependency are automatically considered a build time dependency as well and hence should not be explicitly stated as such. Package git on the other hand is missing as a build dependency. A variable QT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE is no longer used and should be dropped. The indentation of line package() doesn't do any harm but looks odd. In 65de6ae a man page is included as usual so line 'touch [...]' in package() can be removed as well.
