I already tried that but it fails with "Missing dependencies: freetype2<2.6.1", which actually seems quite reasonable given that the repos don't keep the old versions around, unless I'm missing something here.

You're probably right, I think changing it to "build from source" would be less ambiguous.

You can add that as a makedependency with e.g.: 'freetype2<2.6.1'.

Also maybe the pkgdesc could be rephrased, because "built from source" sounds like -bin in that it's "already built".

42.0b4 won't build with the current freetype2 version (2.6.1-1), you'll have to downgrade to the previous one (2.6-2) BEFORE starting makepkg. You can upgrade it again after the build (probably).

This is a package that builds Firefox Beta from source, with mostly the same configuration as the stable packages on the official repos. Firefox is a huge application and its compilation is a very time-consuming and resource-intensive process. It is strongly recommended that you read the wiki section on compilation optimizations (Tips and Tricks section of the makepkg article) and that you enable ccache if you intend to keep updating the package regularly. For a much quicker installation, see the package firefox-beta-bin.
