[pacman-dev] Checking for VSC/SCM tools in makepkg

Am I missing something here or should these sorts of tests cause a failure:
# Also do a brief check to make sure we have the VCS tool available.
[ $(type -p darcs) ] || return 0
[ $(type -p svn) ] || return 0
At the moment, these tests just seem useless to me. Making this an
error would require a decent change in makepkg as at the moment
devel_check() is called before dependency resolution is done. In fact,
I don't think I have ever managed to build an SCM package in a clean
chroot and this may be the cause.
If no-one points out something obvious I am missing, then I will file a
bug report so this is not forgotten.
