When makepkg downloads a source archive and its detached sig, it seems to use the user's gpg dir to check it.

There should be an option to specify a different gpg dir, and maybe even one to specify the system's pacman gpg dir.

This task depends upon

You can use the GNUPGHOME environment variable. Option/commandline switch could be analogue to pacman.conf GPGDir/pacman-key --gpgdir.

Will document the use of GNUPGHOME in the makepkg man page.
