Do I build from source?  If so, is there a good tutorial?

The only change is the installation step -- apt(8) did not work:

        2020-01-15 13:31:02 root@po /home/dpchrist/build
        # apt install freebsd-buildutils_10.3~svn296373-7_amd64.deb

I needed to use dpkg(1):

        2020-01-15 13:38:39 root@po ~
# dpkg -i /home/dpchrist/build/freebsd-buildutils_10.3~svn296373-7_amd64.deb
        (Reading database ... 116788 files and directories currently installed.)

It works!
