Really????? That is a problem then.
Could we improve that feature to check that the PACKAGER variable matches a
userid of the key that signs said package? That would not only be a
stronger requirement (forcing a correct makepkg.conf, rather than one
that's just set so you're running around trying to find "hfkskxfjks"), but
it would also remove the reliance on makepkg's implementation defined
I could try submitting a patch to the relevant mailing list of you think

But this patch gets rid of a lovely feature in arch's db-scripts which
causes an unset PACKAGER variable (resulting in "Unknown Packager") to
reject packages from being pushed into the repos. Your patch breaks
that, and we end up having to hunt down whomever "noclaf at rampage" is to
make them fix their ~/.makepkg.conf.
