Compile BeagleLogic PRU firmware on AI64

We’re currently using the BeagleLogic project on a BB-Black but are looking to see if we can port it to the AI64.

I’m running the 01/2023 snapshot:

I did a git clone of the repo here: GitHub - abhishek-kakkar/BeagleLogic: A Software Suite that implements a logic analyzer with the PRU on the BeagleBone / BeagleBone Black.
I realize it’s probably not going to work out of the box, but I’m not even sure how to deal with this error.

Also, are the instructions between the BBB and BBAI64 compatible enough that this will even work?

Thanks
