I am trying to build csound (present in AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=779), but compilation fails, as noted in the comments. One of the commenters says that he has successfully built the package by pulling the sources from the git repo.
How can I do that? I know how to use git. What I don't know is
(1) how to use git from within a PKGBUILD file,
(2) how to instruct the PKGBUILD file to use the locally pulled git repo

Try csound-git https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=48830 but see the comments - problems again.
You can see how to deal with git in the PKGBUILD.
Another way is to instal binary package from an unofficial user repository. archaudio-preview has csound 5.14.2-1.

Thanks for the pointer Karol, I didn't know about csound-git.
I cannot compile it either, though. Taking care of the problem pointed out in the comment was easy enough---you need to copy one of the provided file in the git repo---, but the compilation fails nonetheless. I guess I'd need to dig into csound's compilation instructions (which are available on their website, and looks rather complex), but i have not time to do it now.
Anyways, the csound-git showed how to use git from inside a PKGBUILD, which answered my question. I am going to mark the question as SOLVED
