Just some corrections:

sxiv's libexif and giflib dependencies are optional and can be turned
off at compile time. It does not use giblib, don't know where you got
this from, and libjs-jquery must be pulled in by (a badly built?) imlib2
package. Furthermore, it directly uses the old-school xlib API and
ignores all the font-rendering stuff built into imlib2.
