[pacman-dev] Idea for makepkg. Use notify-send when package finishes compiling. (optional feature)

Often when compiling large packages I find myself missing the "sudo"
promt to install compiled package.

I have thought of a solution using notify-send command from
community/inotify-tools package that will send a notification when the
package finishes compiling. (but before install)

Could be implemented as an opt-in option in makepkg.conf

If you are interested I can send a patch.
