Well, I'm of the opinion that it should be configurable... I guess it
could easilly go into makepkg itself, but I don't really see good/bad
arguments either way, so it was really just a gut-instinct choice.

I just assumed that if someone (frugalware) were to redistribute
makepkg, it makes more sense to be able to use it out-of-the-box with
a different config, than needed to sed the values out of it.

Admittedly, they will probably end up being ./configure options
anyway, so the argument above doesn't hold much water.
