Should we be handling this issue?

I found in AUR a PKGBUILD with DOS line endings.
See what happens:
: command not found
==> ERROR: An unknown error has occured. Exiting...
makepkg simply sources "$BUILDSCRIPT" and bash treats '\r' literally.
The PKGBUILD maintainer is surely to be blamed and I don't think that
`makepkg' should try to catch this error (sorry for some innocent user).
Just wanted to expose this "feature".
