My problem, at least on F36 was that I'd been using a version of GNU
make I probably built from git around July 11, 2021(!) -- "-v" reports
4.3.90, which is not helpful - I would have preferred to know the
Once I installed the official 4.3.90, that made it so all of HACKING's
pre-release commands pass for me:
    make bootstrap
    make -j12 check keep_testdirs=yes
    make maintainer-check
    make -j12 distcheck                                # regular distcheck
    make -j12 distcheck AM_TESTSUITE_MAKE="make -j$j"  # parallelize makes
    make -j12 check-no-trailing-backslash-in-recipes
    make -j12 check-cc-no-c-o

FTR, using autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.72a.57-8b5e2
