I sent another patch just before getting this. I used the same approach, but I
redirected the output of the call to download_sources in the conditional

Let me know if you still want me to move it to the download_file function and
I'll resubmit.

Incidentally, when I build makepkg locally and run "makepkg -g" it only outputs
the first checksum array if multiple are present (e.g. if the PKGBUILD
contains sha256sums and md5sums, in that order, it only outputs sha256sums). At
first I thought it was due to something I had done, but it happens even with the
current master branch. I've triple-checked this but I'm still expecting it to
be my fault.

I'm building with

# From pacman PKGBUILD
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
  --localstatedir=/var --enable-doc \
  --with-scriptlet-shell=/usr/bin/bash \
make -C contrib

Can someone else check this? Using the powerpill PKGBUILD [1] I only get this:

==> Retrieving sources...
  -> Found powerpill-2013.7.25.tar.xz
  -> Found powerpill-2013.7.25.tar.xz.sig
==> Generating checksums for source files...
