  OK, after much pain trying to build without BLE (old QT5), I managed
to have a functional

  However, when trying to download from my Galileo, even though the
'device or mount point' entry
is greyed out, it insists on trying to open /dev/ttyS4 which makes no
sense for irda...

  Just for the record, I managed to dump the dc with dctool so it
looks like this issue is related
to subsurface proper.
