To get the required development tools (gcc, make, fakeroot etc.):
pacman -Sy base-devel

You can the obtain the source packages using one of the following tequniques (thanks to jams for the info)

several ways. 1) use your development enviroment and follow the readme. 2) don't use your devleopment enviroment and only use git to pull LinHES-PKGBUILD 3) visit 4) visit ... D/tree/abs
we do not have abs setup for linhes at this point
don't know if we every will

Using for example, option 3, you can browse to find the package that you want and download and extract it and build it using (for example for lirc):
tar xvfz lirc-0.8.3-3.src.tar.gz
cd lirc

This will build a binary package that you can then install using:
pacman -U lirc-0.8.3-3.pkg.tar.gz

You can make changes to the package and then build it and install it. once you are satisfied with your new package, you can submit the changes via flyspray.
If you want to find out what package a given file belongs to, you can use the command:
pacman -Qo /path/to/the/file

If you need to make modifications before compiling do the following.

Follow the above steps except instead of makepkg use the command
makepkg -o

This will do the downloading of the source but not compile and install. Now make your modifications. When you are done, use the command

makepkg -e

and follow with the pacman -U command.
