How to recreate a package in Manjaro?

Hello! I want to know how to recreate a package that is part of the official repositories. I mean 'blender' package. What is want to change is adding new addons and render engines to this fascinating 3d software.
What is did is I extracted blender package, keeping only etc and usr directories. I removed .MTREE .PKGINFO and .BUILDINFO because of the package change.
I created a PKGBUILD file
how to generate .MTREE .PKGINFO and .BUILDINFO and create modified blender package? Thanks!

You don't have to do any of that. It is way simpler than that.

Go here and get the 3 source files.
https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/tree/trunk?h=packages/blender

Then edit the PKGBUILD to suit your needs.

Then run makepkg -si in the directory where the PKGBUILD is.
