After some testing, we're going to try this without qtwebkit. If anyone runs into problems because of this, please let me know.

I've moved most of the plugin deps to optional deps. Please pay attention to them. Let me know if I missed something.

2.18.7 is out, but we're going to hold off a bit. There's going to be some shuffling around of packages.

If you build QGIS with qtwebkit support (remove the -DWITH_QTWEBKIT=FALSE line), does it work?

like @garrettheaver, I also get a segfault when using the OpenLayers plugin to add google or bing maps after manually building the dependencies.
Being able to look at the google/bing aerial photos without leaving QGIS is a big advantage for me, but I haven't come across an alternative to QtWebKit yet.

Set your MAKEFLAGS to use all your processors. I outfit everything with an E3-1245 so I can have fast compiles.

Is it possible to get a binary build of QGIS 2? It takes too long to compile. If I was going to compile everything, I might as well install Gentoo!

@garrettheaver I too miss a lot the OpenLayers plugin. I still have QtWebKit installed. Any more hints for a beginner like me on how to recompile that custom python2-pyqt4? Is there any PKGBUILD file available?

Just a quick comment about leaving out qtwebkit, the OpenLayers plugin (very popular) requires it and fails to install without qtwebkit. But thats only a part of the story.

The python2-pyqt4 is also missing the QtWebKit module because presumably, when it was compiled and packaged up the maintainer, he or she didn't have qtwebkit installed so the build left that module out (or more likely they left it out intentionally).

Having locally installed qtwebkit and re-compiled and installed a custom python2-pyqt4 package that includes the QtWebKit module (along with all the other missing qgis dependencies listed in other comments which cause errors on launch) the OpenLayers plugin finally installs correctly.

Using the plugin with OpenStreetMaps seems to work but qgis crashes with a segmentation fault when you try to add a Google Maps layer. I locally replaced this qgis package (2.18) with qgis-ltr (2.14) and that resolves the issue so there must be a problem with 2.18 (this package).

I use manjaro also and it works well with aur ... Don't worry about that !
