I got thru the missing dependencies fairly well, for GC 1.8.1.
After installing a couple missing dependencies, it said, type 'make'

That worked until the very end, where it through a few errors.
I'm not sure all errors shown are relevant to me (for English lang.) -
some may be.
I couldn't find much on these keywords - for Gnome Commander; but did
read about Segmentation fault.  I doubt I have any control over a
Segmentation fault.

Before the line, "touch "de/de.stamp, output looked normal (to me).
This is where it starts showing make errors:
touch "de/de.stamp"
/bin/bash: line 4: 19472 Segmentation fault      itstool -m "${mo}"

I searched the web for these individual errors.  I didn't see anything
with enough discussion to understand how to fix the errors;
or what to do about them?

Another question:
In Readme, the steps listed show:

% make                    # build GNOME Commander
[ Become root if necessary ]
% make install                # install GNOME Commander

I assume that means become root (sudo) for "make install" (NOT for
'make'), where it may be writing to root owned directories, during
actual installation?

Running "make" as root or with root permissions is NOT a good idea. You
are correct. "make install" will probably require root permissions in my
(limited) experience.  What distro of Linux are you working on?  I have
built g-c 1.8.1 on CentOS 7.x and Ubuntu Mate 18.04 (just yesterday). 
Here are 3 tweaks which I have found necessary.

1 - In the .spec file look at line 114. Change from

%{__make} %{?_smp_mflags}



2 - After installation you may need to run "glib-compile-schemas
/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas" as root.

3 - If some icons are missing on the Device Buttons and Device List (
the two rows under the toolbar) install this package:
