This may not be a quantified solution, but adds a theoretical benefit
for when there actually is a .svn directory. Now, personally, I think
it's an OK-addition, along with .git and others, i.e
"purge_vcsdirs()". And of course, since makepkg.conf (and
PURGE_TARGETS) is user-editable, there's no need to make it a default
since we haven't even an actual case to show.
