[arch-general] [makepkg] Permission denied on pkg/ directory

I’ve been porting my old PKGBUILDs to the 4.1 format for VCS packages, 
and for some reason I keep getting errors building the package, with the 
pkg/ directory being created with 000 (d---------) permissions. My umask 
isn’t malformed as I can create directories and files just fine, and if 
I chmod the directory and re-run makepkg, it seems to lock the directory.

Is this a bug, or a new feature of 4.1? Or have I misconfigured 
something somewhere? I did a diff of the configuration files when 4.1 
was released so they should be up-to-date.
