Just to report that the 3.7.0 works fine on Slackware.
Below is the recipe I used to build it if anybody is interested.
Note - I think a quirk of the newsgroup software makes lines starting
with . (one dot) become .. (two dots)
Cheers,
Peter

glad to see my sparsecheckout post was helpful? well somewhat helpful 
... as i noticed that the doc directory /still/ hasn't been flowed to 
github. Did you notice an error because of that? I'll see what I can do 
about applying a nudge in the appropriate place.
