Maybe this should be removed from aurweb? Upstream didn't do something in a while and it cannot be compiled against mupdf 1.12

Still needs a look at the depends line.
Without libmupdf installed this will fail to compile

Since the package got split, the depends aren't satisfied with mupdf.
The Header files needed for compilation got moved to the libmupdf package.
Dunno if those deps can be swapped or if the mupdf is still necessary.

Edit: Oh, and some comments on the PKGBUILD itself.
Empty variables should be deleted, and one array with checksums is more than enough.

Edit2: Patching is necessary.
It fails on unknown datatype fz_text_page and fz_text_sheet
