The idea was that sourcing all of libmakepkg may simplify later 
extension; though there's indeed a lot of stuff and for now we could 
only source the relevant file.

I suppose that makes sense. util/util.sh ("General utility functions") 
may also be appropriate if we don't want to create a new file.

As a side note, if someone knows a way to automatically generate those 
code line numbers in the .po files (this seems possible according to the 
gettext manual), feel free to tell me. :D
