This is already in Icadyptes' makepkg as runtimedeps=(). Not sure if
runtimedeps=() matches the PKGBUILD variable naming scheme as much, but
I would appreciate considering to use runtimedeps=() instead. Although
if you go with rundepends=(), I'll probably switch over too.

Glad that there is some interest for this in the mainline makepkg.
