Still, users' notes are very helpful.

Okay, here's a suggestion of, at least, how I think I can contribute:
I will post notes on the packages as I build them/run into trouble.
This is going to take me a while given my other family (wife and two
boys aged 4 and 7 months), but I can persevere. As I run into trouble
on a package (like glibc) I'll post what's going on and document how I
(with help from this group) solve it.
