Yeah, I'm doing that too and that's just fine once you get close enough
to the goal and to sustain it. Before that, it helps to throw in the mix
some source code from free components not yet in open development to see
how they break. And to allow oneself to move on and identify further gaps
while waiting for a component to come out rather than getting stuck waiting
for it.

Anyway, that's more of a methodology issue. The goal is clearly to
make sure everything builds fine from publicly available sources only.

Yeah, that helps.
