@AlPiotrowicz happened to me too in one machine. Seems the upstream bug is 10 days old. Hope somebody figure out what's wrong with GCC7 optimizations.

Thank you for the link.

New build compiles but icecat is unusable here. Almost all fonts and tabs are invisible.

@xxterry1xx try the new release. This issue also happened in firefox-esr. Thanks for the report.

I am getting this message at the end of the icecat build.
/usr/bin/ldd : cannot find -lcrmf << other people are having an issue with this message, there is a patch in the comments i have yet to try to see if it resolves the problem.

@figue I thought I tested that before commenting, but indeed you're right. I'll delete the original comment as it is a bit misleading. Thanks for the heads up!

@vasya try to delete pkgdir before build, for instance makepkg -sicC
