hi pacman developers,

i currently have to `makepkg' a huge package (go-hg) again
and again.  since compression takes very long (and pacman
can handle uncompressed archives very well), i implemented
an option to makepkg that skips the compression of the
(tar)archive.  this speeds-up my workflow enormously.

btw, this option might be useful in packages like yaourt as

if you find this patch useful, feel free to include it :)

thanks for developing this great package manager!
