Every now and then a pacman upgrade installs a makepkg.conf.pacnew, so
it's useful to take a look at it and to adapt the changes to the
customised settings.

I'm using "meld" to do this. It's a GUI providing a diff and you could
use the GUI as an editor to adapt the changes while displaying the diff.

I don't know if there is something that comfortable, that could be used
with Braille, too.
