How can I install AUR packages during system installation?

Hi,
I would like to automate the installation of Arch via meta packages. Therefore, I defined a meta package that contains all packages that I want to have in my installation as dependencies. During the system installation I call pacstrap for this meta package. This works quite will unless there are no dependencies to AUR packages. If that's the case pacstrap throws an error message like "could not resolve dependencies" . My question: How can I install AUR packages during the initail system installation.
Thanks, mipi

The same way you would on a normal system: git clone, then makepkg.

Thanks.

Is there any possibility to do this in a more convenient way? Would be great if AUR dependencies of meta packages could be installed automatically by pacstrap.

Build them yourself, host on your platform of choice, use that platform as a source for all packages. After installation update everything, AUR packages included.

To elaborate on the above, set up your own repo and add it to pacman.conf, then pacstrap can install those dependencies.
