Looks good. A missing %o in DLAGENTS did need to be supported as the 
makepkg.conf man pages says that it is optional. As a side note, the 
description of %u being replaced by the url if present or the url being 
placed at the end needs tidied up in the man page as it currently sounds 
like putting the url at the end will alway happen.
