[pacman-dev] [PATCHv2] [makepkg] Print out new version on change

When building sources that have a pkgver() function, makepkg prints:
  ==> Making package: $pkgname $pkgver-$pkgrel $(date)
which, normally, works out fine. Only problem is using vcs sources with
a pkgver() function, it will print out the old version. So, if there is
an update, the user won't know what version the package changed to till
after the build. This patch adds in a line that prints out
  ==> Updated version from $oldversion to $newversion
if the version has changed.
