As title. makepkg supports a user configuration file in $XDG_CONFIG_DIR/pacman/makepkg.conf, but makechrootpkg doesn't source it. It only sources ~/.makepkg.conf and /etc/makepkg.conf, so configuration variables in the XDG_CONFIG_DIR location do not get passed to the chroot.

Additional info:
- devtools version 20150514-1
- pacman version 4.2.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
- echo 'PKGDEST=/tmp' > ~/.config/pacman/makepkg.conf
- try to build a package with makechrootpkg
- the package will not end up in /tmp because .config/pacman/makepkg.conf was not sourced
This task depends upon
