The default "# of signoffs to require" would be easy enough to
configure based on architecture. I'll spike this right now.

Allan, for point (3), I wonder if some more makepkg meta info would
come in handy here? We now record checkdeps and makedeps, but also

    function = build
    function = package
    function = check

or something like that might be useful for this and other tools. A
even more sophisticated approach might record the total time each of
these steps took...food for thought.
