What wasn't working that you were able to grab yourself?

Mostly yes -- but you cannot really be sure there is not a quirk somewhere
in the build package.

It is hard to tell from this brief message.
It seems to suggest that the build is seeing a -e option to some command
as a new command. Or perhaps some process doesn't like the -e option or
doesn't like the argument to the option.
It could be that the build expects a later version of a system command somewhere
along the way with slightly extended syntax or option list -- not
necessarily were the problem appears but perhaps during some configuration phase.
