I've tried building Alpha 1 on Bionic but compilation ends up with this error:

g++ -fPIC -O2 -std=c++17  -std=c++17  -g -O2
-fdebug-prefix-map=/<<PKGBUILDDIR>>=. -fstack-protector-strong

//lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ error adding symbols: DSO missing

Here's the complete build log:

Any idea what's wrong? I'm not sure if maybe there are some new
dependencies for 2.4 I should take into account or if maybe a specific
compiler flag is needed.

Thank you,
