well you won't checkinstall unless you ran configure and make, and even if checkinstall lists all the dependencies in the package (I used it with slackware which does not have dependency checking support), you still have to have them installed (what will be done manually)
hence, you will have to take care of dependencies by yourself, so what's the big deal with putting them in PKGBUILD?
the other thing once you have PKGBUILD, you can reuse it, rarely it will not work with newer versions of packages
