Ah, righto; had wondered about that. Fixed now.

@ninian: thank you.
One thing fell through the cracks, you need to remove this line:
That's something I add to PKGBUILDs I modify locally to suit my needs (e.g. different ./configure options). Used along with "IgnoreGroup = modified" in pacman,conf so package is not overwritten automatically on next upgrade. Can't find the Wiki link to it atm.
Thanks for making the mod.

@stef204: Yes indeed, why not. PKGBUILD updated and install file removed; also added application/x-desktop to MimeType list in trowser.desktop file. Thanks for your interest and help.

tx for package.
would you be open to modifying PKGBUILD so that binary name is just "$pkgname" instead of "$pkgname-tcl"?
imho, it would be more convenient.
(desktop file would have to be modified as well.)
install file is no longer needed since pacman now uses hooks.
