Someone who wants to investigate a build failure doesn't pass -c as argument ?

Same as you don't strip when you want to debug.
gcc -g toto.c -o toto; strip toto, have the same behaviour

When you call "makepkg", it will fail and don't remove content to make
investigation. If you call "makepkg -c", i suppose, you want do clean
(even it fail).

My idea was to be able to clean a directory without  build package.
But i can implement something like -C which just clean content of the
current directory.
