Netsurf crashes on start after fresh compilation. Please change order of format specifiers in Makefile.config (and in PKGBUILD it looks like it is duplicated) from:

NETSURF_UA_FORMAT_STRING="NetSurf/%d.%d (%s; Arch Linux)" to NETSURF_UA_FORMAT_STRING="Mozilla/5.0 (%s; Arch Linux) NetSurf/%d.%d" (or similar) as recommended in PACKAGING-GTK. That string is passed directly to snprintf and as of latest the order of arguments is different:

The legacy lcms is not needed as a dependency.

I've adopted the entire family of the unstable NetSurf packages and updated them to build properly.

Version 3.8 is out.

After some digging in netsurf... Netsurf has several build targets - one for gtk (default) and another for framebuffer. This package defaults to gtk target which requires X server. Those, who are interested in pure console need framebuffer build target.

Yup, you're correct. Sorry for the long delay; it's fixed now.

Building seems to additionally require perl-html-parser.

it need makedepends='netsurf-buildsystem-git'

Thanks for the comment, HalosGhost. Updated the PKGBUILD to the new VCS syntax. Unfortunately, this package does not currently build, due to errors in connection with nsgenbind (a package I don't maintain). A nsgenbind-git package may be needed.
