    pactest: generate sync DB's in memory · 624a8787

    Sync database are no longer exploded on the filesystem. Rework the logic
    used to generate our test databases so we can create them completely in
    memory without having to write the individual files to disk at all. The
    local database is unaffected.
    Note that several shortcomings in libalpm parsing were discovered by
    this change, which have since been temporarily patched around in this
    test suite:
    * archive_fgets() did not properly handle a file that ended in a
      non-newline, and would silently drop the data in this line.
    * sync database with only the file entries and not the directories would
      fail to parse properly, and even cause segfaults in some cases.
