compiling github arduino openwrt-yun

Hello

Has anyone attempted to compile the OpenWRT-Yun source code from https://github.com/arduino/openwrt-yun .

I am looking into downgrading the Yun I have to a previous release that is not tainted with Linino.

My computers are all running Debian Stretch and the instructions appear to want Debian Wheezy. I will try Debian Stretch first.

If that does not work I will have to install Debian Wheezy on a spare external disk.
