Correct icecat is a complex build with many patches and such.

You'd want to run something like:

wget -r -np -nd https://git.parabola.nu/abslibre.git/tree/libre/icecat/

inside the directory toy downloaded the PKGBUILD to.

you could try strace to see what is causing the issue. 

The icecat builds are rather large. They take the better part of a day on my
core2duo machine so expect it to take quite a while. 

Can you say more about the error. Why are you trying to run in safe mode? What
architecture? What are you doing when it crashes? When did this start? etc?
