Default [Q] How to compile a 4.4 rom

I'd like to learn to compile a kitkat rom but I didn't find any guides or tips (i have no previous knowledge on how to build a rom) so I wonder if there's any guide for that.

Thanks

If you're trying to build CM from official source, CM's wiki has quite the resource for that, teaches you step by step from setting up your Linux environment to making the final bacon. I haven't built other ROMs yet, but steps should be similar.

Actually I plan on building something closer to stock android with very few custom features but I don't know how to do that yet. I'll try to build CM to get the gist of it,
