[arch-general] Integrating Virus Scanning for Packages Handled by Pacman

While building packages on the AUR, I was wondering that except for
manual user intervention (by reading the code), I didn't have any other
methods of knowing if a package had malware or viruses. Hence, I was
wondering if virus scanning via clamav should be called before pacman
installs packages.
