Hi Calum,

I'm not a build expert but in a bid to try to help (others have already 
pointed you to other relevant parts of the website), have you looked at


also in the FAQ?  In particular,

"If you receive the error ... during the MESA installation of crlibm, 
please check that you are not using an unsupported 32-bit system."

In particular, the lines

     checking build system type... i386-apple-darwin17.2.0
     checking host system type... i386-apple-darwin17.2.0

in your `tester.log` suggests to me that you're on a 32-bit system, on 
which MESA isn't supported.
