[pacman-dev] makepkg colors with a dark on light terminal

While trying some light colorscheme, using a dark on white xterm (which is
also the default), I noticed that most makepkg output was invisible.

For example, just running makepkg in a directory without PKGBUILD display
this message :
==> ERROR: PKGBUILD does not exist.

The "PKGBUILD does not exist" part is always displayed in white, both with
dark and light backgrounds.

I checked with makepkg 3.0, and it works fine in both cases. That is, it uses
the foreground color for displaying normal text.
