the error(s) depend on what instructions I'm following....

yesterday I was using these instructions:

what the $%@% ... it's so complicated!

I spent hours on it!

when googling about it, all kinds of people had all kinds of 
error messages..

I got some message about ../generated/ .. something not 
existing... which made no sense at all...

I really would prefer to not waste any more time on things that 
don't work.

I'm more interested in whether someone knows a step-by-step 
guaranteed way to build a build system **from scratch** (i.e. not 
adding stuff to an existing system that might cause all kinds of
