syntax error near unexpected token `)'

I get that error sometimes when i try to complile. I was trying to use my Banshee1.5.1 PKGBUILD on my desktop (it works on my laptop) and i got that error again. But i don't think it's banshee cause i remember getting that same error when i wanted to complile Gnote.

Banshee

Re: syntax error near unexpected token `)'

I have tried downgrading bash and gcc, but no luck. I have also looked into some config files and stuff but i can't find anything. Maybe it's time for a reinstall.
