Help! I'm stuck

Matthias, or anybody:
I got side-tracked but am back to needing to build this standalone and guess what the error message from the builder means. This build problem has been known for some time, as Matthias kindly notified me.
My question is:Is it possible to tell what stacks are causing the problem, from the builder error codes. I have But it seems a bit odd that I would have to disable the preopenStack, openstack, closestack, preopencard, opencard, etc, etc ad-nauseum.
Before I cause myself a bunch of thrashing around changing a bunch of stacks, is there anything in the error dialog that’s attached that would give me a hint as to where this is happening? Also, I wonder if disabling all these open …. handlers during build might cause build problems. If it was a universal problem/bug, I would think it would have been fixed by LC version 9.6.2 (RC3).???
Thanks for any insight and direction. (I”m on Big Sur 11.2.2). I have 10 stacks and a number of script only lib stacks in this project.

Is there any way to tell more precisely what is causing the problem? Any recommendations on strategy? Should I just change one stack at a time and look for changes in the error window, or just change all them and wonder what affect that would have on the integrity of the build process?
