Description

Currently, libremakepkg uses the chroot's makepkg.conf when extracting sources. I think that perhaps it should use the host makepkg.conf.

Why I think it should use the host makepkg.conf:

  • If ccache (or similar) is used in the chroot, but not outside, it will error.
  • It won't know how to run librefetch. This breaks the workflow.

Why I think it should be use the chroot makepkg.conf:

  • That's what Arch's devtools:makechrootpkg does (I figure the Arch devs had a reasonable reason for doing it this way).
  • Changing things risks breaking things.

Derp, it will only break the workflow if the sources were generated on another box, but weren't uploaded. Since we're uploading them now, that's not an issue.

However, this is still valid:

  • If ccache (or similar) is used in the chroot, but not outside, it will error.

We could try temporarily setting makepkg.conf:OPTIONS to dissable these things during download?
