Yes, building against develop.
Using gcc 7.4.0

This was a laptop I setup about 8 months ago with Ubuntu 18.04.  I loaded all of the build stuff then but ran into the PIC issue and stopped.  I had VMs with 16.04 that I could still use to build on Linux.

After all of the recent activity I decided to give a build a try and it made it through the link process this time.

I just pulled everything again and now it fails.  My guess is that I got a “good” copy of prebuilts on my previous build somehow.  I did notice that it downloaded several prebuilts this time.
