wget + makepkg ... with a script wrapper (shameless plug) in sig.
I tried it here and got the same error, but changing the DLAGENT in makepkg.conf to wget instead of curl solved it.
Also check /etc/profile and /etc/rc.local

- oop, nevermind.
Have you rebooted since your last kernel update?
Yes, that's what I was getting at with the second part of my post. I kept it as close to the original as possible so it would be easy to implement.
Can xsltproc run on a url or do you need to download the file(s) first?
Nope. Many "AUR helpers" do this though. In my limited experience yaourt seems to be one that handles this seemlessly, but I'd say it comes with some costs of hiding what is doing from the user.
You may have better luck getting an answer if you include the WM/DE in the thread title.(edit: thanks - and sorry I can't be of direct help.)
