[pacman-dev] [PATCH] [makepkg] Print out full version on pkgver update

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: $pkgbase $newversion-1
if the version has changed.

$newversion includes epoch and since an update automatically resets the
release number to 1, that is printed as well.
