Here's a slightly tweaked PKGBUILD for Zenity 3.22.0, which is, at the time of this writing, the most recent version. Basically, all I did was change the version number and the sha256sum to match the 3.22.0 source file.

Compiles fine for me. Have you tried manually installing gtk3 with pacman -S gtk3?

Not sure if this is a problem with the package or the source, but currently one my 64 bit AMD machine, this breaks with the following output:

    Aborting... my untrained eye it looks like an issue with no having GTK3 installed, however I have the extra repo enabled, so I would really expect ccr to install it if it's needed...
