I can't reproduce it with 5.43, can you?

I did try to test this on 5.43 before finalizing the ticket... honest!
Began following the build instructions (it's right?) but gave up at the first sign of a problem.
I'm on Apple silicon with my daily driver and snowed under with other work so pursuing that further before creating the issue seemed like too much for me to handle.

But I'm definitely happy for you to close this if it seems like a non-issue in the latest 5.43 release.

Really appreciate you taking a look!

No it is; try building that. I have a mac too, and it builds just fine.
