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 commit. 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
