Hi Andrew

Some time ago I worked on a patch to the CG manual to list the dependencies needed by GUB, but I never completed it since I never managed to run GUB successfully.
I'll send the list later today.

In my opinion, you'd better use the LilyDev container.
One of the big problems with GUB is that everybody gets a different error, because they build GUB in different environments. If we all work in the same environment, we can help each other more easily and try to fix one error at the time. A recent pull request has made LilyDev ready to crossbuild, as required by GUB. This does not mean that GUB runs successfully but it's a first step. The person who submitted the PR and me are having the same GUB problem.

Hopefully today I'll be able to make a new LilyDev release: there will be a Debian-based container which can be run on Linux host and a Ubuntu-based Docker image which can be run on any host.
