P.S. I notice now that it actually had the tarball checked into git. In general, the AUR is not a source code hosting platform, only a PKGBUILD hosting platform, so PKGBUILDs, patches, small config files and so on are good to check into git, but other things probably should not be. Also, tarballs do not compress well in git. So really that should be uploaded somewhere else, such as github. Either way, makepkg simply won't work without the sources in the source=() array. The location of $srcdir (which is where the package function is run from) does not have to be next to the PKGBUILD, so ../ cannot be used to access files. makepkg will guarantee that all files in the source=() array are symlinked into $srcdir and extracted if they are tarballs, regardless of where the $srcdir directory is relocated.
