for me (anyone else) it is in the range of minutes to add missing
 - create a Makefile (recycle another one)
 - create a directory
 - add to tools/link.conf the crosslinking to 5.3
 - make mix
 - compile

Whatever you remember to be missing, just post it.
Sorry to insist, but we should make the move to 5.7 and not
stick with older versions for years.
