All these build errors and quirks are making it harder for new potential
contributors to join the team of evolution developers!

It's not good that I (an experienced developer) have to spend a few
hours fixing stuff and searching for solutions just to get evolution

Any new potential developer is simply going to let it be, and start
thinking: "Oh well .. bad luck for evolution. I'm not going to
contribute that fantastic idea that I had a few minutes ago."
