I've been having precisely the same problems with a fetch from Feb
28th. The screen goes blank and that's it. 

Given how difficult it was to get the thing to compile at all I sort
of wonder how closely the source tree actually matches anything which
has actually compiled? I keep finding things like those default
BANKEDDEV options which lead off into lalaland and wondering if the
published source tree is just a hotch-potch of people's incomplete
patches. Can anyone elaborate on just how the source tree is updated?
