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:

There is a netsurf package in official repository that works, so you could try that. But because netsurf doesn't support javascript, I dropped it.

lockheed, I get the same errors as you. The makefile mentions "netsurf-buildsystem", but I can't find it on the netsurf webpage at One can speculate that it will be released shortly.

I didn't realise there is a non-dev version in official repos. Thanks.

But the error I am encountering, I am not sure whether it's netsurf-related or something is wrong in my system.

lockheed, the development version of netsurf is under continuous development and may have problems from time to time.
If you consider this a bug, consider reporting it upstream. Here's the bugtracker:
