Since devtools 20131101-1, checkpkg doesn't work anymore:
$ checkpkg
==> ERROR: Multiple packages found:
==> ERROR: tarball not found for package: system-config-printer-1.4.3-1

That's because makepkg makes a symlink to the package in the $startdir if $PKGDEST is set. I suspect it's caused by this commit:
which doesn't check if it's a symlink.
This task depends upon

There is a fix by Dave in git. But how can I reproduce this? I have build a new system-config-printer-1.4.3-1.1 package and the current checkpkg works just fine.

The trigger is PKGDEST being set for both makepkg (to create the symlink to $PWD) and for checkpkg (so that find_cached_package looks in PKGDEST).

$ PKGDEST=/tmp makepkg
$ PKGDEST=/tmp checkpkg
