[arch-dev-public] makedepends

So flac (in [current]) has a makedepend on xmms (now in [community]).

In this instance, this seems okay, since if xmms one day goes away, we 
remove that makedepend and the only bad effect is that there's no xmms 
plugin.. which is fine if there's no xmms!

But couldn't this be a problem in general? Do we have any rules about 
makedepends across repositories?
