[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.
