[arch-general] makepkg as root

'--asroot' was removed with deliberation and forethought.

If anyone can think of a compelling reason the developers have not thought
of, perhaps you will have luck convincing them. Random feature requests
saying you want it probably don't qualify... at least explain why you are
not able to simply run 'makepkg' in another user account.

I do have to wonder, though, why... one is running as root by default???
Why else would '--asroot' be needed?
