The gtk3 PKGBUILD references 'tracker3' in the depends array. As the upstream meson_options.txt sets this option to false by default and the PKGBUILD does not explicitly enables it, this dependency is never actually used. I'm not sure what the desired goal is here, but IMO either tracker3 could be dropped as dependency or the build function needs an additional '-D tracker3=true' to enable the filechooser search.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
$ pacman -Q gtk3
gtk3 3.24.27-2

* config and/or log files etc.

Upstream meson_options.txt snippet:
option('tracker3', type: 'boolean', value: false,
description : 'Enable Tracker3 filechooser search'

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
- don't install tracker3
- install gtk3
- confirm there's nothing irregular when using GTK3 applications
This task depends upon
