Now that I've got the hang of git, I start knocking up some patches for

I've made a start on makepkg. I'm aiming to replace all the exit's with
$E_* so it's easier to work out why makepkg is exiting. So far I've got
0 = E_OK - No error.
1 = E_UNKNOWN - This is should be avoided where ever possible.
2 = E_BUILD_FAILED - build() failed for some reason.
4 = E_USER_ABORT - do I need to explain :p
8 = E_MISSING_PROGRAM - if wget|fakeroot|... are missing.
16 = E_CONFIG_ERROR - something wrong (or missing) with makepkg.conf.
32 = E_BUILDSCRIPT_ERROR - something wrong (or missing) with PKGBUILD.
