OK, I don't know if we want to dig this further.
Maybe it had something to do with badly updated Python:

I was having problems building borgbackup, which depends on, most 
probably, Python2 for building the docs (I'm using slackrepo):
- building in verbose mode caused the build to fail,
- building in quiet mode succeeded,
- revert python2 from 2.7.13 to 2.7.11 and the build succeeds in both modes,
- upgrade again to 2.7.13 and the build succeeds in both modes.

I'm aware of the 2.7.13-1 problem that 2.7.13-2 corrected, but damn, I'm 
sure I had the correct version.

Let me bother you again when having problems building qt5 ;-)
