Well, the symlinks can be removed as they are unnecessary nowadays (the
man page and the .desktop _should_ still be installed), while 'no-gconf'
could just as well be manually installed from the AUR beforehand, as it
replaces 'gconf'.

Building 'openssl098' is the only thing that might bother some people.
It could be moved to optional dependencies, since not everybody uses the
built-in Pepper Flash anyway (which requires it).

At the _very least_, if this package was to be kept in the AUR (which I
disagree with) the name should be changed to something like
'google-chrome-dev-no-gconf'. But using the same logic every single
package in the AUR depending on 'gconf' could be cloned with '-no-gconf'

Is _this_ what we want?
