[pacman-dev] [PATCH 1/2] makepkg: git clone instead of git fetch if $dir exists but empty

Before this patch, makepkg would only check if $dir exists as an
indication that a local clone exists. And if $dir does exist, makepkg
will run git fetch inside it unconditionally.

After applying this patch, makepkg will check if the existent $dir is
empty. And if it is, it will be used to store a local clone.
