Part of me would like to see:
Checking glibc 2.9-4... OK
Checking pacman-git 20090116... OK
Verification Complete
1512 files checked (2 packages)

But... that could be a lot of output. It might be cleaner to see:

Checking for missing files for installed packages
# if any errors, output like:
pacman-git: Missing file /etc/pacman.conf
# endif
Verification Complete: 1512 files (2 packages)
