Build OpenJFX -> ':graphics:compileDecoraNativeShadersLinux' fails

Hi All,

first sorry for my bad englisch. I have tried to build OpenJFX
according to the instructions in the wiki. (
et/display/OpenJFX/Building+OpenJFX)My OS is Linux Mint 18.3.

The first thing is that the wiki says that I need gradle 4.3. ("We
currently use Gradle 4.3 for jfx-dev (IMPORTANT: Only this version is
regularly tested)." But when I use gradle 4.3 the build says:

Unsupported gradle version 4.3.1 in use.
Only version 4.8 is supported. Use this version at your own risk

It seems to me that the wiki in this point is no more actually.

Okay, so I changed the grade version to 4.8. ANT-Version is 1.8.2. JDK
is 10.0.1

Unfortunally, "gradle sdk" doesn't work. The build fails with this

> Task :graphics:compileDecoraNativeShadersLinux FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':graphics:compileDecoraNativeShadersLinux'.
> java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException:
org.gradle.process.internal.ExecException: Process 'command 'gcc''
finished with non-zero exit value 1

Can you please help me get the build up and running?
