Here's the PKGBUILD for version 41.3, based on Arch's one. The patch didn't require any change. It doesn't even require libportal anymore, it's unnecessary, it's only for Flatpak.

I can confirm it, I have the exact same problem.
My temporary workaround was to manually extract the older version of libportal, and put the missing file to /usr/lib/.
(Off: why does your spam filter contain about "too many non-dictionary words" in a technical forum where pathnames and package names are common?)

if the patch did not need to change; then why did it's checksum change?

there is a problem compiling epiphany with meson 0.61.x

epiphany/data/ ERROR: Function does not take positional arguments.

it is possibly related to this freebsd patch:

i did not apply that patch - i rebuilt x86_64 with 0.60.3 - the standard i686 meson is 0.60.2
