It's now in extra and also contains arch-build. Building packages for
i686 or different repos is now as easy as running e.g. extra-i686-build
in the PKGBUILD's dir. Just check "pacman -Qql devtools|grep -- -build"
to get a list of the different commands. Of course you cannot build
x86_64 packages on an i686 system though.

Future versions will be more advanced but for now this should be the
way to easily build packages in a defined environment.
