- Status changed from in progress to fixed
this can be built without webengine - webengine is apparently used for a runtime "addons" downloader, which is something else, which we would rather patch out anyways - so i also disabled the downloader
also, the arch package is built from VCS, though the package is not named 'freecad-git', and yet the upstream publishes versioned source-balls regularly - so, the parabola package builds from versioned source-balls
it has another flaw though, which is more troublesome - it requires networking to during the configure stage - like some others, i suspect that it does not require access to the internet, but only an internal networking/IPC mechanism - maybe libretools could be adapted somehow to allow that
