Default makepkg: add check to ensure we have non-URL files in build dir

Pacman 3.0 printed the following message if a file could not be found:
ERROR: xxx was not found in the build directory and is not a proper URL.

We lost this logic in 3.1 when moving to the DLAGENT type stuff, so a
not-found file got passed all the way to the download logic where it failed
with a odd error message. Bring back some logic to ensure only files with
URLs get past a certain point, and fail if the file is not available.

Fixes FS#9208.

Decision time guys- this patch would 'break' the string freeze, but I can't
think of many other ways to do what it does without (re)introducing the below
error message.

This patch also needs some testing with real building to ensure it doesn't
break anything that worked before. In my 10 minutes of testing it seemed fine
in most cases.

So should we include this for 3.1? Even if the message is not translated, I
think it would be better to fail correctly than fail wrongly as before.
