Hi Chris,

I tried from home, i.e. without my work's firewall, and the files 
transfer OK once I had switched to the 4.11 branch of git. I am now 
doing the build. It seems I am missing various things which the check 
function didn't catch. I'll work through it and give you a list of what 
was missing. Maybe they can be added to the check list.
