Patches welcome, although I'm not completely sure that all of these
need to be exported. (look around line 888 of makepkg). CARCH and
CHOST are truly necessary? However, someone wiith more building
experience than I should comment on this.

PACKAGER really seems unnecessary to export. PKGDEST? I don't think
so. FTPAGENT? Same as the others in this paragraph.
