I tried building aasaver using PKGBUILD from https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=16522 but I am getting following error:
==> Entering fakeroot environment...
==> Starting build()...
File "./configure", line 27
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
I tried removing the '.' at this line in src/aasaver-0.3.2/configure file but it keeps coming back since the tar file is untarred everytime. Also I am not sure if removing '.' will work. Please help.

That package is rather old and intended for KDE3 .
from aasaver homepage
NOTE This content is the KDE 3 version of the screensaver. I have not uploaded the KDE 4 port here because it is now included with KDE 4 in the kdeartwork module.
While it may be interesting / a learning experience to solve the problem, if all you want is the functionality using the native kde4 aasaver would be much easier.

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
Thanks for this important information. I agree that there is no point in persuing this package.
