cmake is for nothing in this behaviour (else, I'd encounter it as well for
my viewer and distro, the latter also having both python2 and python3
installed). It's likely a bug in LL's build system...

Note that my viewer is using a largely modified build system (derived from
Snowglobe v1's), that can build on pretty much any Linux distro (but for
6+ years old ones, since they won't fulfil minimum cmake and/or gcc versions
requirements), and which does not rely on any external resource (such as
"autobuild", "llbase" and all that non-sense)...

Glad you found the solution however.
