Haxe ubuntu installation issue



I’ve been trying to install Haxe 4.0.0 preview2 (not the latest preview4). I’ve cloned the branch https://github.com/HaxeFoundation/haxe/tree/development-4.0.0-preview.2 and followed the installation steps:

1, Install Neko, which is available in the repositories of many Linux distributions. e.g. On Ubuntu, just sudo apt-get install neko.
2. Install OCaml (4.02 or above), camlp4, pcre, and zlib. Again, try to find such packages in the Linux repositories.
3. Navigate to where the Haxe sources are and build Haxe using make:
make install

The installation returns the following error:

make -C libs/extlib-leftovers native && make -C libs/extc native && make -C libs/neko native && make -C libs/javalib native && make -C libs/swflib native && make -C libs/ttflib native && make -C libs/ilib native && make -C libs/objsize native && make -C libs/pcre native && make -C libs/ziplib native && true

Please help me resolve the installation issue.


Did you clone all submodules?
