Hi, this addresses previous feedback from agregory and also fixes a bug
I found in my own testing. I've had success creating packages such as:


Which are, imo, far more beautiful than the boundless "if $CARCH" checks.

Feedback welcome -- I'm very interested in getting these in good enough
shape to be merged for 4.2.

Branch: http://code.falconindy.com/cgit/pacman.git/log/?h=arch-specific

Dave Reisner (5):
  makepkg: break out check_checksums to reasonably sized functions
  makepkg: break out checksum generation to its own function
  PKGBUILD: add support for arch-specific sources
  updpkgsums: update to recognize arch-specific sources
  makepkg: move negation in inequality comparisons
