Once a package in the root is outdated, it will update each time you run archbuild, this doesn't make any sense since you are just repeating the same work each time you run it. The following patch updates the root, and not just the copy of the chroot. Small packages aren't a problem, but if you have to upgrade kernel26 each time you build a package, it get's really annoying.

Patch attached.

there is no needed to pass -M and -C to mkarchroot, the chroot already has those configs. Neither ${base_packages}

sorry, I did the patching in a vm so this was the best way to transfer the file for me at the time.

I have attached the patch which trims the mentioned unneeded arguments.
