No, the build failed because of the new version of NTL.  Sagemath's
ntl_wrap.{h,cpp} assume that many of the fundamental types (ZZ, ZZ_p,
ZZX, etc.) are structs.  In NTL 6.0.0, they are classes, not structs.
I've got a patch to adapt sagemath to this, but didn't have time to
test it over the weekend.  I've just started a test build.

If the build succeeds, what would you like me to do?  I can send you
the patch, and you can work it into the 5.9 update, or I can do a
build of 5.8 with the patch.

OK, that makes sense.

Rex, are you okay with me going forward with the rebuilds, or would
you like to handle your own?
