The conf files in question do not get synced as frequently as pacman
updates them. :) it's essentially a pristine copy of the unmodified
makepkg.conf from the pacman package, and should never differ.

Huh, I was trying to think if this matters, since makechrootpkg
explicitly verifies sources outside the chroot, but it does so by
calling makepkg --config $copydir/etc/makepkg.conf
