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.

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

@AndyRTR forgot it. Thanks.
I keep pkgrel in 1. Please make a git pull of your local repos.
