cups-filters as per [1] got rid of DjVu fonts (ttf-dejavu) in the latest 1.28.10 release.
It can be dropped from makedepends. There is however a notice in the PKGBUILD, that ttf-dejavu is just for make check, but this should be fine without it by now.

-----8< snip >8-----
'Bug fix release: More reliable legacy CUPS browsing in cups-browsed, improved PDF printer sample PPDs, with borderless page sizes, eliminated unneeded dependency on DjVu font, minor fixes'
-----8< snip >8-----


Additional info:
* cups-filters-1.28.10

Steps to reproduce:
Adjust PKGBUILD accordingly and build without makedepends ttf-dejavu. Same functionality, no regression.

Nice catch! :) Unfortunately correct. We'll wait and see what's changing in the next releases then.
