I've merged some/most of these.  I think it is important to provide
this configurability.  Just because the packages on archlinux.org are
built one way, it doesn't mean that the packages from "joe's repo for
archlinux" need to be built the exact same way.

Thanks for the patch.  For the record, I'm in the process of
'twiddling' with makepkg/gensync so they're not complete atm - I check
into cvs what I do at work so I can work more at home 8).
