When ever yaourt failed to build for me, makepkg failed too, e.g.
regarding to a tmp issue. The only drawback I'm aware of is that yaourt
doesn't automatically informs you about "upgrades" of e.g. git
packages, likely it's not a drawback, but an advantage.
pacman -Q | grep git
and decide on your own, if you want to upgrade one of those packages or
svn or ...

Not OT:

Thank you, that might help David too. His feature request anyway is a
good idea.
