therefore must be built by a precompiled "snapshot" version of itself (made in
an earlier state of development). As such, source builds require that:

You may find other platforms work, but these are our "tier 1" supported build
environments that are most likely to work. Further platforms will be added to
the list in the future via cross-compilation.
To build from source you will also need the following prerequisite packages:
- * g++ 4.4 or clang++ 3.x
- * python 2.6 or later
- * perl 5.0 or later
- * gnu make 3.81 or later
