Thank you VC. I'm entirely unfamiliar with this option. I did some Googling around, and came up with a few things, but I'm at a loss as to how to implement the solutions I've found. One suggestion was to run:

Alternatively, it seemed like I could stick

Sorry. I've been a dev for over 20 years, but I'm outside of my expertise here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks very much.
EDIT: I just tried to build with
but no dice, it failed the exact same way. Confused...
