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

When building sources with a pkgver function, makepkg will print out the
original version before pkgver() is run, claiming that that is the
package that will be built. This patch simply re-prints the output
later, after pkgver() has been run so people can see which package they
are actually building.
