FWIW, no updates are suggested for the source-building machine in my office, also running Mojave. (June 5 was Constitution Day and Election Day, so I have been away from the machine until now.)

We do need to keep an eye on the tools though. My current setup is an  -um- eclectic mix (*) of old and new tools, some of which are 32 bit, and this is going to be a problem in 10.15 Catalina. I did try getting the tools better in line with Simon's setup at some point, but there were hiccups and then I ran out of time and couldn't risk collateral damage.
