 Stage one: follow what others have done, and attempt to understand
it.  Stage two, make your own changes, and see if you have enough
experience and understanding to fix the problems.

 OK, I saw you pulling lots of things into git trees.

 Mostly - as I said in my reply while you were sending this out, it
worked for someone (barring typos in what was committed) but it
*might* break something later (typically, something will fail to
compile and need a patch or a sed - I've seen that happen with
toolchain changes, but also with e.g. bison, grep)

excuse me?

 And you top-posted again, by failing to trim (or in this case
remove entirely, now that the context is effectively lost by putting
it somewhere below your individual replies) what I said :-)

 Yes, I know that is how windows users use email, but that doesn't
make it right for a technical list.  Not everyone uses thread-view
on all lists.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
