Well, I am not good at script programming, so I assume that this patch
is OK. :-) In my opinion, even if ArchLinux doesn't switch to
sodepends/soprovides, it would be useful, if makepkg supported this
feature. (I like this, because pacman doesn't need to be tweaked. ;-)

This is not the competent ML to decide if ArchLinux's repos should use
these flags, personally I have some concerns about db.tar.gz size. (That
needs testing, which requires patched makepkg, too.)
