Makechrootpkg always run namcap at the end of package build process even if option "-n" is not present.

Additional info:
* Devtools version=20170911-2

Steps to reproduce:

Run the following command in PKGBUILD directory:

makechrootpkg -r ~/archlinux/build -c

At the end namcap is run, but "-n" (run namcap) is not present.

Proposed patch:

It seems, their is a missing argument when calling function prepare_chroot line 414. I suggest the following patch:
