One major problem.
Never build in the source directory, the final src.patch
must fit with you desired patch.
So only what you patched should come out.

For this package that does not respect the build in a
different directory than source, you shoud start
with something like:

src_compile() {
         cd ${S}
         cd ${B}

unfortunately I have no time to dig further
short term
