Erm, it's a bit of a hack, so make sure if you DO add it to the wiki,
you slather it in warnings like "OMG please be sure you know what
Considering this is only scripts, you should only need to change the
CARCH variable so that makepkg will generate an x86_64 package.
Now, there is actually another way to hack this... you can actually
just edit the .PKGINFO file, change the %ARCH% variable, and rename
the file. Though, I think, 'extrapkg' would need the makepkg.conf
changes in order to upload it properly
For the record, vim can open and allow you to edit files in a tarball.
