Attempting to build kicad-git source on Slackware-current Linux
I am having no success despite having been able to do this in the past.
Previously I was able to build for gtk2+ with Python2. Now trying this fails at runtime with eg. "(eeschema:6730): Gtk-ERROR **: 15:29:43.689: GTK+ 2.x symbols detected. Using GTK+ 2.x and GTK+ 3 in the same process is not supported". According to https://forum.kicad.info/t/gtk-2-to-3-issues/24856/2 GTK2 isn't able to be used any more.
Instead (my preference anyway) I am now trying to build against gtk3+ and
I get this error,

CMakeError.log shows the test compilations failing with these three errors,
c++: error: unrecognized command line option '-Winconsistent-missing-override'
c++: error: unrecognized command line option '-Wmismatched-tags'
c++: error: unrecognized command line option '-Wimplicit-int-float-conversion'
BTW I am using GCC 9.3.0.
I built wxWidgets-3.1.4 using a slightly modified third party SlackBuilds
script for the wxGTK3 package, which includes the following configure,
It includes the '--with-opengl' option as required by Kicad at
Initially I built the SlackBuilds wxPython4 package which uses wxPython /
Phoenix version 4.0.7.post2 and tried building Kicad with that.
Then I tried the wxWidgets/Phoenix git source (reports as Merge branch
'sip-4.19.24'). The Kicad build log above was built against that.
I am confused as to whether my Kicad build log failed due to compiler flag
or package dependency problems...
I also tried building the kicad-5.1.7 stable/release (with gtk2+,
Python2). That was successful but my current project's new format files
(eg. .kicad_sch rather than .sch) means I cannot use kicad-5.1.7.
My last successful build of kicad-git (i.e. from
https://github.com/KiCad/kicad-source-mirror.git), used gtk2+ & Python2,
has nasty bugs -- eg. segfaults when trying to switch between sheets in
eeschema and is barely usable which is why I need to rebuild.
I am stuck. Please help!
