This was part of a conglomerate patch I sent earlier which has now been

I like this move because it removes two checks of GENINTEG plus and
additional check which would be needed in the block checking the arch
array. It now also skips all the other PKGBUILD checks which shouldn't
cause an error when only generating the integrity checks. However, it
does put the geninteg code block in the middle of nowhere, but I suppose
it is an awkward but helpful addition to makepkg anyway.

Well, I don't know what to add.
It is not a big deal either way, so if you are ok with it, just pull it ;)
