Yes, I'm slightly interested in it, but it isn't at the top of our
priority list. Within the next week or two, we plan on consolidating a
lot of the current arch projects in one place, and that will make it
much easier to update these things.

Until then, feel free to submit a patch to this list fixing some of
the issues, and we can make sure it gets to the right person.

To substitute for the lack of -w option, we did implement this feature
for makepkg: if PKGDEST is set in the environment, that value is used
instead of the one in makepkg.conf. This should allow for srcpac to be
modified accordingly.
