[pacman-dev] [PATCHv3] [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.
Because makepkg now supports not having an initial pkgver if there is a
pkgver() function, check to see if there is a pkgver set and choose
between two less awkward ways of saying that the version is updated and
the pkgrel has been reset to 1.
