A bit more detail would be cool...

Where are you getting errors?

Is it possible the Python targets that aren't building?

If it's the Python stuff, try setting PYTHON_ROOT to where you normally have
Python installed. I set mine by adding -sPYTHON_ROOT="/usr".

By the way , I get 17 failures and 5 skipped targets, so even I have problems
:-) Although some of them are expected.
