I've had intermittent difficulty with builds too recently but haven't
said anything because I'm not building gnc for any particular purpose.

I have noticed the cmake / ninja combo has been mentioned more than one
recently here.

Should others that build-because-we-do-it-anyway be switching and is
there a suggested "start reading here" ref you could suggest?

I'm building on Ubuntu LTS if it matters ... and it shouldn't really
matter as I'm just building to keep in touch.
