Sorry, but I still prefer CheckInstall. Checkinstall also does RPMs and DEBs as well as Slackware packages and it's *way easier* to use than ABS or EBUILDs. You just type "checkinstall" instead of "make install" and it will strip the binary, create the package (with dependencies when building RPM/DEB) and will install it for you. No reason to bongle your mind with filling deps manually and end up with multipe folders that ABS creates and complicates the matter.
I just wish someone could add a backend to Checkinstall for Pacman. Now, THAT would rock!
