Description

denis has a PKGBUILD for [libre] already

from the git log:

    To avoid qt5-webengine, this package has been built without
    QT support. QT support was used for the IDE and a GUI, which
    may be able to work without qt5-webengine if supercollider
    is patched.

    Supercollider can also be used as a dependency of other packages
    that are not yet in Parabola such as sonicpi.

GNUtoo do you have a github account? - as far as im concerned, this should be marked as "forwarded upstream" for now - until we know how the upstream plan to address it - could you post to the upstream BR and explain what you did and ask if it is similar to their plan - that could avoid forever patching something that will have a proper configure switch in the next version

a cmake option 'SC_USE_QTWEBENGINE' was added upstream - it looks like it is slated for the 3.10.3 release - once that hits arch, we can remove the parabola patch and use the configure switch

$ cmake ....
-DSC_USE_QTWEBENGINE=OFF
....

i also asked david from the arch-proaudio team about this, and he is considering to make a -nowebengine arch package
