I currently have the latest epiphany (2.18.2) and the latest epiphany-extensions (2.18.2). One of the epiphany extensions that I always use on other operating systems is the RSS subscription extension. This tool will show a small orange RSS icon in the lower left corner of the window when visiting a site that has an RSS feed. Clicking on the orange RSS icon brings up a window allowing the user to easily subscribe to the feed.
When building the www/epiphany-extensions port, this RSS extension is not created. This extension and the adblock one are probably the two most popular epiphany extensions.
Build www/epiphany-extensions. Start epiphany browser, go to Tools > Extensions and look at list of available extensions. The RSS extension is not there.
The Makefile has "EPHY_EXTENSIONS=all" which apparently is supposed to create all the epiphany extensions. However, it does not create the "RSS" extension, which is a tool to allow for the easy subscription of rss feeds into Liferea.
I changed the Makefile to "EPHY_EXTENSIONS=all,rss" and the RSS extension built fine. That's probably not the best way to fix it -- maybe it should be made a tunable option -- but it shows that it works.
