No worries, once I got it to run, it was easy to use, though needs
quite a bit of time to build everything.

But now that I made it to run, I'll try to use in the future as well :-) .

In the past I also had it run on -rc1 without any issues.
Just after refreshing with with your recent changes, it was back at
5.17-something and then I went to 5.18-rc6 as base.

So there wasn't any real reason for -rc6 except was the most current
release :-)
