You seem to know more about this than i do!

Ok, i've stripped out all the scrollkeeper from gnucash and updated
the gnucash-docs package (should these have been merged?  they are
separate .tar.gz sources, so i've just made them separate packages),
and updated the version to 2.2.3.  I also removed the aqbanking
dependency.  Before that, i checked to see if you could build gnucash
with aqbanking, but not have it listed as a dependency, and it ran
fine.  It had the internet banking options in the Tools menu if it
found aqbanking, or removed it if it could not.  However, since
something is still the matter with aqbanking or with where gnucash
expects it to be (it gives an error message indicating that it cannot
locate some aqbanking utility when clicking through the wizard), i
just removed it entirely.  There were some users in the past that used
it, however.

Anyway, new PKGBUILDs and .install files are up in AUR.  I've got the
old ones around if you want to compare.

NOTE: slib is still a problem.  without some crazy workarounds,
gnucash won't build properly with anything after slib-3a1.

Again, please forward this on to the mailing list for reference.
