[SOLVED] Failure half-way through build

Hello, I'm trying to build the project for the sake of compiling KiCAD from sources.
I think I followed the instructions well, and make was working for about an hour, and completed 42% of the build, but then ran into an issue.
It looks like an error somewhere, an ld got a bunch of flags where it was expecting a filename, I think.
I'm on Lubuntu 22.04.1, gcc 11, trying to build 7.5.0.
Talk to me like a newbie, though, as I'm an eternal newbie in linux, in spite of living in it for the past 10 years.
Relevant output:

Thanks in advance.

Hello, 7.5 has advanced dependencies list. And i think you will face up with more problem, such as undefined word for "limits".(applicable for new compilers)

To fix your problem you need to "sudo apt-get install libxmu-dev"

Best regards, Dmitrii.
