Actually, you haven't.
  • Why are you compiling at all? Why is a snapshot not sufficient?
  • If you want the source to be synchronized with the snapshot installed, the chance to have done so has passed. Source for the August 17 snapshot was synchronized at the time the snapshot was compiled. Since then, other developers have added changes daily.
If you want source merely for the sake of study, downloading source today will not be identical to the snapshot, but it will be close.

While you can continue to compile your own system, I would recommend spending more time with the documentation & asking questions first. Attempting to compile while confused & unclear of the process is a recipe for disaster.
