Allan and I talked a bit on IRC and we both came to some idea that a
vercmp without any deps would probably be a good solution. We can hack
this up for now, file attached to do so.

If this goes into the pacman package dir in SVN and we just add a "gcc
-O2 -o vercmp vercmp.c" in there and put it in the right place, we can
avoid a lot of hassle with everything here.
