Using the latest daily build, I get a bunch of error notices when I run db/build.
This patch fixes most of those errors:

Explanation of changes:

1. First off, this patch fixes this error:
Notice: Undefined index: LeftAndMain in /var/www/silverstripe/sapphire/core/Object.php on line 241

The fix was in addStaticVars() to only merge Object::$extraStatics[$class] with $statics if it is not empty.

2. Next, it fixes repeated errors like this:

Notice: Use of undefined constant Datetime - assumed 'Datetime' in /var/www/silverstripe/sapphire/core/model/Database.php(67) : eval()'d code on line 1

It does this by adding the needed single quotes around the first parameter in statements like:
return Object::create('Datetime',$fieldName);

3. It also fixes a bunch of errors like this by just changing $field to $fieldName:

Notice: Undefined variable: field in /var/www/silverstripe/sapphire/core/model/DataObject.php on line 955

4. This patch does not fix the following error:
Notice: Undefined variable: surl in /var/www/silverstripe/sapphire/main.php on line 109

A fix for that error was posted by steki here:

Hope this helps,
