Would it be worth adding a sudoers configuration that allows any
/usr/bin/*-x86_64-build command? On the theory that that is a rather
specific script suffix, and is exceedingly unlikely to be created in
/usr/bin/ for any reason other than as a symlink to archbuild with a
corresponding /usr/share/devtools/pacman-*.conf (which is presumably
something that should always be allowed).
