I don't tend to build my own version much but I have got it to work in 

Last time I built mkgmap (a few months ago) I noted down the steps I had 
taken. I've taken a copy of those steps and put them into the wiki. They 
may help (either directly or as a starting point for somebody to expand 
into a fuller explanation).
