That was pretty much how I was going to handle this. All our scripts
have the do is detect the number of elements in pkgname and do the

db-scripts changes once I tidy up everything in makepkg.

From experience, this is a permissions issue. Dan fixed it last time
and Jan the time before that. I can't access the log files on the
server anymore to confirm that is the error so can someone look for me?
