gnucash is in the repo for ARM - im not sure why it is not build for
other archs - was it previously?

to be clear - i think what you meant to say was that archlinux does not
build 'webkitgtk' anymore - it is not at all correct to say that
webkitgtk is un-maintained nor would that imply that it is necessarily
"un-safe" - webkitgtk is an actively maintained project and there was a
new release just 2 days ago - also, 'webkitgtk' is still an available
parabola package in the non-prism repos so it matters not what the
status of that package is in archlinux - parabola will continue to build
it for as long as it is useful
