Why don't you just try it and find out?

If you are asking me about my personal experience, I always compile surf from
source. I maintain my own personal fork with my choice of patches and
customizations at [1]. I never had any problems yet on Artix with compiling and
using surf with Artix's precompiled webkit.

When using binary packages, you are at the mercy of however the maintainers of
your distro decided to compile it. When you compile software from source, you
have (more) control over how the software is compiled. If the binary version of
wekbit doesn't work, the only other thing you can try is compile it from source.
If that fails too, raise the issue with the maintainers of your distro.
