thanks for your suggestion. I'm using the official arch-build docker container 
(archlinux:base-devel) as base for my testbuilds, so I assumed the changes 
have been made therein.

But I had a closer look. The relevant changes were:

           'scp::/usr/bin/scp -C %u %o')

so it's basically just reordering -g and -q options. I made the config merge 
on my local system and it does not change the behaviour (as excpected). Also a 
short investigation in the build container showed the changes have been made 
by the container image builders.
