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.

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.

Any plans to update this to the new VCS syntax?

All the best,

Updated the PKGBUILD. It compiles here now.

Netsurf has switched from svn to git. Created netsurf-git and merged+removed netsurf-svn into this one.

The latest changes seems to be to depend on a netsurf buildsystem, for which there doesn't seem to be an official release.
However, there is a git repo, that I don't know if is the official build system or not, at: https://github.com/pcwalton/netsurf-buildsystem
