The syntax highlighting of nano for pkgbuilds is missing a few makepkg options.

I've attached a patch for /etc/nanorc which adds coloring for arch, options, noextract and the SHA sum options (like md5sums).
This task depends upon

Please don't go further. The nano customization makes it unreadable using terminal emulations with a white background.

Considering this kind of add-ons violate the KISS mantra, I am asking you remove the nanorc customization from the package or include it as a separate file and print the way to install it (optionnaly) during install.

Of course, if you go on, I will continue disabling it with a NoUpgrade option in pacman.conf, but I should not be obliged to do so.

@ Andy: please add etc/nanorc to backup array.

Please don't modify nanorc in this way, it's way too different from the example nanorc and I find it quite annoying. I think the package should simply install the nanorc.example as /etc/nanorc and then add it to the backup array.
