Not a direct answer to your question, since I'm not entirely sure when "the
next" makepkg is planned, but have you tried:

find -name PKGBUILD -exec grep "noemptydirs" {} \;

in whatever root directory you store your PKGBUILDs off?  If all that shows is
the options= lines, then you should be able to fix all your packages in one
swipe with something like:

find -name PKGBUILD -exec sed -i "s/noemptydirs/\!emptydirs/g" {} \;
