I can't believe I posted this 2 years ago, and not followed up. I've searched my posts and found no other posts on this so .. wow.. time flies. I did manage to compile it successfully and was treated to a much newer faster version than I had ever used before. (I thought I had already posted this !) thanks all.

I see the link above is from Sep '17, does it all still apply for Mac OS Catalina, having got an even newer faster shiny mac last month.

I would like to build it again, and also for some windows machines - is there a best practice guide for compiling the latest and greatest on windows -- there's a few versions it seems, I'm not sure which one I should be targetting.
