Actually, after some grepping I found that there is only one other usage 
of DUPATH/DUFLAGS in the entire codebase. It goes like this: first we 
set DUFLAGS="-sk --apparent-size" in configure.ac, forcing it to report 
sizes in kilobytes (the -k option), and then we multiply the result by 
1024 to get the useful number (lines 1905-1906 of 
scripts/makepkg.sh.in). Do you think there's a reason behind it, or 
should I just change "-sk" to "-sb"?
