Installing LyX from (stable) source?

Hi all,

I use Void Linux and am not satisfied with their LyX package, because
it apparently contains hard links to the 2020 TeXLive, which of course
is giving me errors. I'd prefer to handle my LyX and TeXLive myself,
without Linux distribution packages.

Are there any special gotchas I should know about ./configure;make;make
install that might mess me up? Where should I procure the latest
*stable* LyX --- I don't want to download the latest Git thing that
will change tomorrow.
