This is a reminder for myself and a FYI for anyone else that is 
interested.  There is a new Arch fork called Icadyptes 
(http://icadyptes.org/) which does some changes to makepkg and to a 
lesser extend pacman (see http://icadyptes.org/index.php?q=node/2).  
Their git repo is here: 

Maybe there is something useful there that would worth merging.  Adding 
something like "runtimedeps" has been previously suggested but from 
memory the patch never got updated for inclusion.  Other makepkg changes 
listed will probably never make it here... 

Anyway, I will give the Icadyptes dev a ping to suggest that any changes 
could/should be CCed here so we can decide whether to include them.
