(CLANG-STRICTER-SYSTEM) in the summary means that the bug was found on a machine that runs clang with stricter mode

Comment 2 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2022-11-21 08:23:39 UTC
Error(s) that match a know pattern in addition to what has been reported in the summary:

./configure: line 5864: texinfo[^0-9]*([1-4][0-9]+|[5-9]|4\.[6-9]|4\.[1-5][0-9]+): command not found
            error ("select error: %s", emacs_strerror (xerrno));

Unless someone is going to provide a patch, I guess it is time to last-rite slots 23 and 24.
