I just released libretools 20180826 to [libre] and pushed the source
tarball to <https://repo.parabola.nu/other/libretools/>.

TL;DR: Merge your /etc/makepkg.conf.pacnew (if it exists).

This is a minor bugfix release.

Bugs fixed from 20180815 20180826:

 - librechroot: Make the 'clean-pkgs' command work correctly.
   Previously, it misbehaved if libretools is installed, or will be
   installed, inside the chroot.

Changes from 20180815 20180826:

 - Change how the librefetch makepkg hook is installed.  This relies
   on makepkg.conf loading /etc/makepkg.d/*.conf, which had been
   discussed previously[1]. This change is present in pacman
   5.1.1-1.parabola4 and up.  Previously, the libretools install hook
   had edited makepkg.conf.  The new post_upgrade install hook should
   make the upgrade seamless if you haven't made any manual
   modifications to your makepkg.conf.  If you have, you will need to
   merge makepkg.conf.pacnew.
