[mythtv-users] Build from source on Archlinux -Master

I installed mythv v31 on Archlinux using "yay -S mythtv" to get the
dependencies mostly installed. After setting up the backend, it's all
working normally.

Then I installed and cloned master. The ./configure worked fine.  However,
the "sudo make install" had an error. The tail of that console is:

running install_egg_info
running egg_info
writing MythTV.egg-info/PKG-INFO
writing dependency_links to MythTV.egg-info/dependency_links.txt
writing top-level names to MythTV.egg-info/top_level.txt
reading manifest file 'MythTV.egg-info/SOURCES.txt'
writing manifest file 'MythTV.egg-info/SOURCES.txt'
removing '/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/MythTV-32.0._1-py3.10.egg-info'
(and everything under it)
Copying MythTV.egg-info to
running install_scripts
error: cannot copy tree 'build/scripts-3.10': not a directory
make[1]: *** [Makefile:27: install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/jim/build/mythtv/mythtv/bindings/python'
make: *** [Makefile:75: bindings/python_install] Error 2
[jim at den-pc mythtv]$

The only dependencies I had to install beyond what v31 installed was:
touchsound and python-setuptools. I must have missed something.
