This version appears to be out of date. The current version is 5.8.4 apparently.

Upstream seems to no longer use libcroco, which has been discontinued by GNOME since 2019.

The PKGBUILD provided by EndlessEden doesn't work as the compiler fails when linking run-js-test. It appears to be due to the export CFLAGS section of the file. Also, cjs-git is not necessary for this to build.

Note, the modified patch provided by EndlessEden is still needed.

I'm currently in the process of recreating all the cinnamon-related *-git packages from scratch, but at the moment cjs-git does not even build because autoconf-archive did a backwards-incompatible change. :D
