I've given this a fairly thorough testing now.  It even managed to deal 
properly with passing an argument with a space in it (which is where I 
thought it may fail...). It does not put unused stuff at the end, but 
makepkg actually does nothing about those so this does not really matter...

e.g.  outputting $OPT_TEMP

Not patched
./makepkg --log -p "BUILD SCRIPT" foobar
==>  --log -p 'BUILD SCRIPT' -- 'foobar'

./makepkg2 --log -p "BUILD SCRIPT" foobar
==>  --log -p 'BUILD SCRIPT' --

It would be nice to do something about adding the unused values at the 
end in case we ever do something with them but that should be a simple 
fix.  I can probably add this tomorrow and pull the patch onto my 
working branch.
