PlatformLinuxOSCRUXOS Version4.9.61

Target Version3.8Fixed in Version3.8 
Summary0002588: Can't compile from source
Descriptionupon running 'make' per the instructions:
I get::

(Many lines indicating an ongoing successful build, line by line, until...)

cc: error: build/Linux-gtk/messages_gresource.c: No such file or directory
cc: fatal error: no input files
compilation terminated

I tried to get into the directory myself and look for the file, sure enough, it's not there. I can't find a "messages_gresource.c" file anywhere in the source.

Steps To Reproduce'make'
Additional InformationI'm very interested in this project and love the idea of a web browser that works the way this one does. Once I can get past this compilation issue, I look forward to testing the browser.
TagsNo tags attached.

this appears to be because glib-compile-resources command was not found
this should have halted the build, will look into it

Missing dependency in makefile. Build will now halt at point the tool cannot be found.
