I was just building chromium-browser-svn. It pulls 900 Mb sources and took hours to build.

The build worked but the result was quite disappointing. The browser does not render 
asiatic fonts correctly, is not faster than any other browser and pulls some weird 
dependencies (ttf-ms-fonts).

I do not think this product is mature enough to hit the repos yet, and I do not see 
anyone who wants to do that.
