libheif supports building a gdk-pixbuf loader for heif which is not build/installed in this package. This seems to be because of missing depencies in the PKGBUILD file - having gdkpixbuf installed, the loader module is built and installed (using the very same pkgbuild file)

Simply adding gdk-pixbuf2 to the make depends should do it, I guess.

It would be great to have it built and installed however, to greatly smoothen the workflow for people dealing with iPhones. Thank you very much in advance!

Additional info:
* package version(s): 1.4.0-2
* integration of gdk-pixbuf loader first appears in version 1.4.0 (merge was done in commit 9d96532836d7b01a7288a22b81c77486f9885dbe)

Steps to reproduce:
- on a machine without gdk-pixbuf2 installed: build PKGBUILD, inspect pkg - no file "libpixbufleader-heif.so" has been built.
- on a machine with gdk-pixbuf2 installed: build the same PKGBUILD, inspect pkg - libpixbufloader-heif has been built.

This task depends upon
