Now here's something I never knew, and just found out poking around
inside makepkg itself - it supports per-user configs.  

Make changes in ~/.makepkg.conf and bam - individual configuration.

I was just about to comment how xine and other similar apps have
per-user config, but I figured I'd look to make sure I wasn't talking
out my ass when I was going to say makepkg didn't support that
- good thing I checked. XD
