Default makepkg: don't try to verbump PKGBUILD on /dev/stdin

This works around an edge case where we try to change the $pkgver and
$pkgrel of a VCS PKGBUILD passed in standard input, which fails on
missing write permissions in /dev.

As an added bonus, we avoid a second (costly) full re-sourcing of the
PKGBUILD, and simply reassign the variables that may have changed to
ensure that in the non-write case we create the new package with the
correct version.

Extreme edge cases ftw.

Allan, correct me if I'm wrong that this is the only place where we actually
modify the PKGBUILD itself. I had myself a grep around and couldn't find
anything else -- I just want to make sure I'm not going to hit some crazy
pitfall by avoiding the second resourcing. I did do some simple testing and all
seems to be well, but you probably know this portion of the code better than I

The second resourcing is a must. e.g. PKGBUILDs could have something
like this:


change pkgver...
