A bit of downloading and testing suggests that the 201912311458 build on bintray is the last one that actually works for ARMlinunx.

The next one - 202001240142 is a broken archive (45 bytes!) and all more recent ones segafault on startup.

Eliot & I spent a little time last night trying to work out what has happened and it appears to be a bit of a mess. We can't build a current VM because something has stopped the 'asasm' assembler tool working; we get an interesting 

Fatal error: Failed to get ELF handle
asasm: Error when writing object file 'BitBltArmSimdAlphaBlend.o'.

... that neither of us has ever seen before. That makes it really hard to use gdb to investigate what is going on.

More as it happens...
