Comment (by ken@…):

 I finally managed to download 46.0.1 - with the identical mozconfig that I
 was using for 47, and the book's instructions, 46 fails fairly quickly.
 But 47 [ -j8 ] fails after 3.064 seconds.

 The strange thing is that client.mk appears to be the file reporting this
 error, but diffing against 46.0.1 shows that code is not new.

 From 47.0.1:

 *** Fix above errors and then restart with\
                "make -f client.mk build"
 make[2]: *** [/scratch/ken/firefox-47.0/client.mk:384: configure] Error 1

 make: *** [client.mk:181: build] Error 2

 And the relevant lines are:
  $grep 2.13 client.mk
 # try to find autoconf 2.13 - discard errors from 'which'
 AUTOCONF ?= $(shell which autoconf-2.13 autoconf2.13 autoconf213
 2>/dev/null | grep -v '^no autoconf' | head -1)
 AUTOCONF = $(shell which fink >/dev/null 2>&1 && echo `which
 AUTOCONF=$(error Could not find autoconf 2.13)

 I had hoped to test this before I went to bed, but I'm giving up and
 hopefully I'll be doing other things for the next couple of days.

 Oh, and when I saw that fedora were using 47 - looks as if they actually
 use betas (no surprise there, but the commit message made me think
 upstream had cut the release).

 Looks as if I should have commented disable-gstreamer ... that doesn't
 seem to be what causes that failure.
