makepkg: Respect XDG_CONFIG_HOME

Add support for following the XDG Base Directory Specification when
reading the user-specific configuration file.

If no $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/pacman/makepkg.conf file exists we fall back to
sourcing $HOME/.makepkg.conf

The system-wide configuration file is found in {sysconfdir}/makepkg.conf.
Individual options can be overridden (or added to) on a per-user basis in
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/pacman/makepkg.conf or ~/.makepkg.conf, with the former
taking priority.
The default file is fairly well commented, so it may be easiest to simply
follow directions given there for customization.
