nice to hear that there is some progress, even when it fails to build.
QTMoko2 is one of my preferred OSes as it is finger-friendly. Sad to
hear about that lib/dev-package chaos there. Seems like that there is
some cleanup required. Or maybe switch to systemd-free alternative
Devuan? [1]

Then at least one awful component, systemd, is gone. ;-) Paul
Tagliamonte wrote [2] about it some years ago.

Best regards,
