I have been researching PKGBUILD and makepkg, but I cannot seem to figure out how to simply make a package with already built, local executable files. I need to package them up so that I can easily install them on another Linux machine. I am using Arch Linux.

I basically need to take two executable files from a specific directory, make a package with those files, and then be able to install those files on another Arch Linux machine in the same location that pacman would normally install executables. Not use any source code or anything because the apps are already built.

I know to put the files in the source spot in the PKGBUILD file, but what do I put in the package() function, and do I need a .install file? If so, what do I need in there?

EDIT: This question has been resolved. The best answer has been marked.
