I have Qt5-9.6.8 and Python3-3.7.3 installed on the two 64-bit hosts.

Trying to build the 2.18.18 version with the SBo script (on the 64-bit
desktop) fails:

[ 97%] Built target qgis_app
Makefile:149: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

I'll look at the URL you provided and try that. It's likely that the 2.18.18
version will do the modeling I need to do, and learning why the Makefile
failed would be really helpful.
