[pacman-dev] makepkg and NOT extracting netfiles

Okay...blame wizzomafizzo :P.  Because of the new way makepkg deals with files
(not using the extension), files that are actually zipfiles but called something
else that do not need to be extracted will be extracted (this is wizz's
example).  Best example I can think of is like a .pk3 file for some games
(which I think is really just a zipfile).  Anyway....we came up with the idea of
a noextract=(...) field in the PKGBUILD and the patch is below.

I'm not entirely too sure on whether or not this is entirely necessary...but oh

Patch is below.
