therefore we need to export the MAKEFLAGS and DISTCC_HOST. anything
else should be safe without an export call. i could confirm that both
variables are not working properly. -j4 falls back to -j1 and distcc is
not working without.

would you prefer to export them in the makepkg.conf or
in /usr/bin/makepkg ?

both would be easy to fix.
