    Revert "makepkg: add whirlpool to the list of hashing algorithms" · d03409cc

    This reverts commit 9cdfd187.
    We've never documented whirlpoolsums support in the manpage and no one
    really seems to have realized we support it, let alone use it -- except
    for a few parabola packages, being the contributor's motivation for
    adding support.
    The problem is that for two years the code has been broken. In commit
     we moved to coreutils to
    provide checksum commands, rather than openssl, but there is no
    whirlpoolsums binary.
    Properly fixing this would require re-adding a dependency on openssl,
    independent of the libalpm crypto backend -- which defeats the purpose
    of moving to coreutils in the general case. nettle-hash does not provide
    a whirlpool algorithm any more than it does base64 (the original reason
    for moving to coreutils).
    Therefore, we should just drop support for this again.
