since I am forced to build Blender myself every time there’s a new version or hotfix released because the select through patch keeps getting ignored, I keep running into all sorts of build system issues I am unable to resolve myself.
So I deleted the git repo, I deleted the entire SVN repo too, and I proceeded to go over the entire time consuming process of following the build guide (Building Blender/Windows - Blender Developer Wiki) step by by step.
But even then, I am still getting an error whenever I get to the make update step:
It is the same issue that caused me being unable to check out 2.93.4, which made me nuke everything and start from scratch.
How do I solve this?
