In general, building Nut/OS is not depending much on the version of the 
tools used. GCC is a famous exception, as each version becomes more 
strict. Because our Makefiles do not allow warnings when building the 
OS, it is often required to step back to an older GCC version. As an 
alternative you can remove the -Werror option from Makevars.gcc (in 
Nut/OS 4.9).

Also wxWidget becomes a show stopper during the last years and we will 
probably move to Qt soon, which looks less critical regarding long term 

Doxygen shouldn't crash on newer or older configuration files. If it 
does... well... what can I say?

In any case, if there are problems with certain tools, the configure 
script allows to exclude them, if they are optional as explained on page 
18 of



  ./configure --help

In your case the option --disable-html-docs should have helped.

On the other hand, I agree, that many problems could be avoided by a 
more detailed documentation and users are often unsure, which version of 
the tools they should install. "Any you like" is not always the right
