Hi Lawrence-- Just taking the script for a test run-- FYI using -j > 1
can potentially end up causing problems when building the dependencies
(as it just did for me) that are non-obvious and look like code issues
(but are not).  In my case, lame compilation failed, and I had to make
distclean, then manually rm the stamp, then restart the build process
with a single build thread to continue fine-- there was never any
actual code issue, just that the compiler got ahead of itself.

That said, it's not a problem with the script, just a potential gotcha
with the instructions.  Took a few runs through before it would
complete.  Everything else appears to have behaved.  Nice work.
