That's exactly the point. If you don't have a local clone of the
repo, you don't have the PKGBUILD, so there's no problem.

The _hgrepo and _hgroot lines are already commented out, and the
ln -snf line always works, because of the -f flag. Although, to
be honest, I don't think it's necessary. It would probably work
without it. The whole point of that PKGBUILD is that you can
build the package straight from the repo without any fuss.
Anyone who wants to do different can just use the AUR.
