PKGBUILD never finds the modified config.h in the top build directory, because it is looking for it in the wrong place. The prepare() section should be something like this:

prepare() {
    if [[ -f ../config.h ]]; then
        echo "FOUND config.h, copying..."
        cp ../config.h "${pkgname}-${pkgver}/config.h"

Also could you add tabbed as optional dependency?

Please add libvoikko, libaspell, aspell, hspell, nuspell as dependencies.

This package is missing a dependency on gcr:

Package gcr-3 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gcr-3.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'gcr-3', required by 'virtual:world', not found

This built for me on pinebook pro with aarch64

Tried building this for RPi running aarch64 and keep getting the DRI error

libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate
Could not create EGL sharing context.
Could not create EGL context.

Any idea how to get beyond this? The libGL files are all in /opt/vc/lib

D'oh, those libs are for armv7h (32 bit) and will not work with aarch64.

Is there a way to get surf to run without the GL libs?

@The-Compiler That was from default config. I bumped package to a commit after 2.0 release, where StrictSSL enabled and toggle key introduced.

Looks like the config.h (which is probably coming from arojas?) does:

SETB(StrictSSL,          0),

Which seems like a horrible default - it just turns off TLS verification completely, which can be seen by e.g. visiting
