Good luck with the build though -- I haven't built it successfully on
Fedora32 yet, but I have not tried in a few months.   You may also find
some of the hints by Vasily Lebedev at
https://github.com/bruceravel/demeter/issues/62 and links therein to
Pastebin configs and hacks to get Demeter to build.
