[Solved] Bash and missing expr when building AUR

Trying build NetSurf 3.9, got errors due  missing "expr" in bash
Strange, Arch do OK.

do from command line

>> expr --help
bash: expr: command not found

all path are good, exactly there's no expr.
 
Some standart POSIX commands are missing in Artix?

You didn't install Artix with all packages from base group. That's why Arch has it because the wiki guide tells you to install base group on first step

Edit:
If you're wondering, expr comes from coreutils package which belongs to base group

If I can hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

thank, fixed, thought "base" is fully installed with artix-mate-lxde-openrc-community-20190609-x86_64.iso, installed only base-devel
