PKGBUILD variables in arch

I'm trying to apply a patch to an arch package.  Where does makepkg 
extract downloaded files?
What are the values in $startdir and $Srcdir variables?
My PKGBUILD is in my home directory and I run makepkg from there.
cd $srcdir points to ~/src which is not where the files have been extracted.
