[pacman-dev] makepkg repackage option text

Currently makepkg has a line like this:

echo "$(gettext "  -R, --repackage  Repackage contents of pkg/ without 

which is now true, but only to an extent...  If a PKGBUILD has a 
package() function or split packages, then the packaging functions are 
run, not just a simple repacking of pkg/.

So, alternative text is needed, and I need help generating it.  How about:

"Rerun the packaging stage only"?

or does this need more description?

For the man page:

Rerun the packaging stage without rebuilding the package. This is
    useful if you forgot a depend or install file in your PKGBUILD and the
    build itself will not change.
