i think the author of this advisory is desperate for advisories or attention.

either way he needs to open a disassembler and work on something else.

What's the point of building a bunch of sources unless 1. you trust their author, or 2. you have made sure their is nothing malicious there?

When you build an executable from untrusted sources, you get an untrusted
executable. Either you run it and you're screwed anyway, or you don't run
it and you wasted your time building it.

(Indeed, there are some marginal cases like when you want to build an executable file intended to run on someone else's computer...)
