I was able to install the GUI Bitcoin Core without any issues, but tried the compiled version from GitHub and can't get past the 'make' stage. I followed all the instructions in docs/ including installing Homebrew and Xcode, so it came as something of a surprise.

I confess I am not too sure what's happening, any suggestions for what to check? This is a new Mac so I doubt it is my particular setup.

The error message at the end:

Making all in src
../share/ line 3: cd: Source/bitcoin/src/obj/build.h: No such file or directory
  CXX      libbitcoin_util_a-clientversion.o
clientversion.cpp:42:10: fatal error: 'build.h' file not found

EDIT: The one other oddity was an earlier issue I discovered with OpenSSL, which I fixed by manually running the two export commands as described here:

But that was in the same terminal session so I assume the two variables were still exported.
