Thank you. I've tought the PKGBUILD how to do this itself (with
quilt), adapted it to parabola, and tidied it up a bit. Once it
compiles and I can verify it to be working, I'll push it to the
[~lukeshu] repo in git. Feel free to merge those changes back in to

Parabolers: Feel free to move it from [~lukeshu] to [libre]. I'll try
iceweasel-libre-lts and binaries up soon *grumble*chroot*grumble*.
