You need to install libxkbcommon-x11 (due to bug FS#40468, which has still not been properly fixed).

Change the build(){...} function to this:

build() {
cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
sed -i 's/{c,o}/c/g' Makefile
sed -i 's/, HTMLParseError//g' pkgbrowser/
sed -i 's/HTMLParseError, //g' pkgbrowser/
make PREFIX='/usr'

Won't start after major python upgrade today:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/", line 9, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 112, in run
File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 56, in window

from pkgbrowser.backend import (
File "/usr/lib/pkgbrowser/pkgbrowser/", line 6, in <module>
from html.parser import HTMLParser, HTMLParseError
ImportError: cannot import name 'HTMLParseError'

and won't build either:

install: cannot stat ‘pkgbrowser/__pycache__/*.pyo’: No such file or directory
Makefile:50: recipe for target 'install' failed
make: *** [install] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

OK. You are right. Rebuilding pkgbrowser solved this problem.
yaourt -G pkgbrowser && cd pkgbrowser && makepkg -sirc
