If 'makepkg ... --verifysource' inside makechrootpkg's 'download_source()' fails, the temporary directory is not being removed, leaving behind an empty directory tree of the structure 'tmp.XXXXXX/foobar/src' for package foobar.

The attached patch (against git revision 75fdff1811a0487f82c75b2e260da905102b4eea) will get rid of the directories if the said command failed.

It would be nice, if you could include it in the source - otherwise the 32-bit build slaves will be jammed with a lot temporary directories :-)
If you don't want to include it, let me know (and possibly a reason therefore), and I will probably patch it into our fork of the devtools.

The above patch introduces a bug, because $WORKDIR is owned by root and not by $makepkg_user.
This has been corrected in the attached patch (which now also is being tested / has been tested in the archlinux32 build system).

sry, I should have done this before :-/
