I downloaded a VirtualBox VM for Fedora 27 from https://www.osboxes.org/fedora/.
In that machine, I rsync’d over a bk repository with a clone of
Any machine with gcc v7 will need the new changes in bk to build. I haven’t released them because it doesn’t improve bk in any way and the existing installers work fine.

yum install gcc make gperf bison flex groff pcre-devel libtomcrypt-devel libtommath-devel lz4-devel zlib-devel libXft-devel

Also pushed an update to the dev repository:
