The reason behind this is that mupdf 1.4 has its own javascript interpreter which is maintained in a seperate repository, but shipped with the source code as a thirdparty lib. Since there has not been a versioned release of it yet and as far as I know mujs is developed especially for mupdf, the most convinient solution would be to add a:

install -Dm644 build/release/libmujs.a "$pkgdir"/usr/lib

to the PKGBUILD of mupdf.

Then one needs to recompile the zathura-pdf-mupdf plugin and link it against mujs as well. This can be achieved by modifying the build function to:

make -C "${srcdir}/$pkgname-$pkgver" MUPDF_LIB="-lmupdf -lmujs"
