Hi James!
I'd like to help here if I can.


However at home I am on metered internet and it appears that after make 
lilypond it starts to download files? Can you tell me approximately how large 
the data that will be downloaded is - speed of download isn't an issue, just 
the amount.

Gub + downloaded source files:  about 710 MB

Also, I assume we can use the same make -jX CPU_COUNT=X parameters to help 
speed up things?

No. But gub itself (repeatedly executed by 'make lilypond') uses -jX to build 
packages whenever the package specification allows it. On my system (i7-4790K, 
55/10 MBit network connection) 'make lilypond' takes about 185 minutes.

Finally - in case I am being stupid, I don't follow the GUB threads in detail - 
I obviously have all the reqs to build LP and make doc etc. So apart from this 
git repo is there anything else I need to have installed?

Nothing unusual. But our python seems to be incompatible to gcc 8.x. gcc-8 
might be installed as long as there is also a gcc-7 somewhere in PATH.
