Hi, Knut.

Now that I’ve settled in to my new iMac (64-bit, X86 processor, Mac OS 11,5.1) 
I’ve got all my usual utilities running in the new environment except lilypond 
and Frescobaldi.

Pre-compiled binaries for this computer aren’t available, so I’ve cloned the 
source code into my ~/git_stuff directory as follows...

cd ~/git_stuff
git clone
cd lilypond

… but I get stuck when running, which generates the output I’ve 
enclosed in ******

Am I naive to think this should “just work”?
