I believe the build may have been fixed since you experienced this. You may 
be able to refresh your source code and the trouble has passed.  This is the 
so-called "bleeding edge", so to speak.

The -CURRENT branch is where the developers 'play' with brand new code. It 
is never guaranteed to always build or even work at all. They will break 
things and they will fix things; it is an up and down roller coaster ride. 

Cordialement,
