Comment (by fo):

 There is a regression, causing the error:

 I have built a patch that fixes that. Not sure how unsecured it becomes.

 But there is a problem. The docs are all rebuilt (man and info), with two
 consequences: I am not sure what the dependencies are used to do that, and
 the build time increases to about 2.6 SBU.

 There is a switch that I could add: --disable-doc. However, I believe most
 people would like to have at least the man pages.

 I will attach the patch and wait until tomorrow for any possible help,
 which I would much appreciate.


 I am doing something wrong and it fails only in my system. But version in
 the book does not fail.

 We skip this update and wait either for a patch or a new version.
