bootstrap-prefix.txt fails with error
color.c:31:19: error: magic.h: No such file or directory
The fix should be easy, the include and link directories just need to be updated.
The makefile doesn't specify the includes correctly because magic.h is in $prefix/usr/include/
if I fix this by hand it further wants to link to the magic library, so the linking must be corrected as well with -L$prefix/usr/lib
If i fix both of those correctly I can compile nano-2.3.1 by hand, but bootstrap-prefix.txt still tries to recompile it using the original (broken) makefiles
It seems your flags are missing. Did you run the interactive installer?
I eventually got it to work by setting environment variables CFLAGS and LDFLAGS and running the bootstrapper in manual mode.
I originally had done bootstrapping in automatic (interactive?) mode. I don't think the directions specify setting any flags or environment variables.
