Ah, I haven't tried that.

Yes, I could only find a 32-bit binary from Mozilla. But, things in the AUR
usually build from source unless there's a reason not to, right? I don't know
if there is a policy to this effect, or if it's just common practice... but
PKGBUILDS should /build/, right? :-)
I just checked out Prism from SVN, but there isn't a readme on how to build it
and I don't have any experience with building mozilla's code. Also the Prism
wiki doesn't provide any information either.
Will post back if I get anywhere...
