I didn't try these instructions recently, but they proved very useful when I first built FG, so thanks for this!

Two remarks:

  • plib being dead upstream, what is the point of building it? I've always used the Debian one for this without any problem (well, actually a fixed local version for joystick deadband management; sid now has the fix at last, but not stretch, unfortunately).
  • Current FG from next requires these two packages when building with Qt support: qtdeclarative5-private-dev and qml-module-qtquick2 (since FG commit 3a8d350, committed on 2017-09-26).

a) yw
b) TBH I am not certain whether the plib step is required anymore, will look into that for the next update (for which I hope to have some spare time in the upcoming days). Last time I've checked it was required since Melchior's commits never went into a release and hence never reached Debian.
c) Thanks for reporting the newly required packages, saves myself some research!
