some people have kindly responded to my post. Here is an attempt to
answer some of the issues.
* What is my build environment?
Ryzen 7, Asus X-370 Pro, Fedora 27 Workstation with current kernel (4.13
or 4.14 if memory serves), clang 5 and whatever gcc/g++ they're shipping
these days. (I attempted to use the PlanetCCRMA realtime kernel, but
that didn't work for reasons that I don't yet fully understand, so I'm
using the vanilla kernel so far.)
* Why did I use 5.9?
I could have sworn that the download page for the Linux tarball said
5.9, but looking again, it clearly says 5.12, so I must admit that I
have no idea where I got the "5.9" from. Sorry.
I have now upgraded to 5.12 and the compilation was equally hassle-free
and the compiled result is equally working :-)
* Does it compile with clang?
Yes. My mistake was to use CXX=clang instead of CXX=clang++. Again, sorry.
However, if I understand correctly, clang is not used for production
use, as most people compile with gcc/c++. Is that correct?
