[pacman-dev] vercmp / force update

we use "vercmp" to create our diffscript

vercmp still reports 0.8.10a < 0.8.10

that's why we have to use force='y' in our PKGBUILDS that also appears
in pkgdesc

shouldn't we fix this before the release?

i suggest to create a strict rule how to mark "alpha", "beta" and "rc"
packages to get them detected as smaller values than the next/final and
any other post-final "a" or "A" release.
