I guess its english.
Recommending a debug saying on wiki how to put --enable-dbgutil into the autogen.input ... and then solving that wacky issue with boost.
why do you think I was asking to download a debug version. of 30G...

A build for a newcomer has to be run three or four times?  Why should the tar files get downloaded four times?  How does a newcomer turn it off after the first download?  Tor had to explain that to me.

This is another HIGH COST OF ENTRY.  I ask questions and I get answer that don't fit my questions.
