pacr - pkgbuild generator for R packages available on CRAN

I wrote a pkgbuild generator for R packages available on CRAN. Some features include:

- Removal of packages in pkgbuild depends() field that are listed as dependencies on CRAN yet are included in the Arch Linux base R installation.
- Removal of duplicate dependencies listed on CRAN in favor of the higher-versioned duplicate.
- Manual overrides of specific pkgbuild fields for particular packages, which can be specified in a .yaml config file. This can be used for, for example, specifying your own package description for a package rather than using CRAN's description, which sometimes don't conform to guidelines.
