makepkg: send messages to stdout rather than stderr

This behavior is confusing, since it means absolutely everything goes to
stderr and makepkg itself is a quiet program that produces no expected

The only situation where messages should go to stderr rather than
stdout, is with --geninteg which is meant to return the checksums on
stdout (but we don't want to totally get rid of status messages when
redirecting the results elsewhere, or, worse, redirect status messages
to a PKGBUILD). For this specific case, redirect message output to
stderr in the --geninteg callers directly.

Implements FS#17173
