> why this current release code won't work
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/info-gnu/2016-06/msg00005.html says make-4.2.1 is from 2016-06-11. In the email thread I cited previously, for what looked like the same errors, we see Paul writing, over a year after that release, on 2017-11-19, "I pushed a change that should allow this to work properly". So the reason that the current release code won't work is, I suggest, because there hasn't been a new release that includes that change. Why not cut to the chase, prove it, tell us and thus help to encourage a new release? If you want a shortcut, perhaps Paul's patch was:
But patching configure.ac sounds like something that would then need the full build-from-git procedure, with autotools, rather than the build from a release tarball, in which case I think you'd be better off with the git head. Still, perhaps you could patch whatever file the configure script is generating there as a quick proof of concept.

So I could just lift that out of glibc 2.27 and drop it into the make
source tree and have a go at it. Is that the idea here ?
You could try, but I'm not optimistic that it will just work.
"just work" ? nope. not even close.
I think the way forward is to get the latest code from GNU make's Git
repository and see if that works:
Well sure ... however before I get there I am still baffled why this
current release code won't work on an old 32-bit intel debian server?
I just compiled kernel 4.15.15 on that machine and am running it now.
Certainly if I can compile and run a new kernel on the same machine I
would think I can compile GNU make from sources? Or am I stretching

Be sure to read the README.git file for information on building from
Git, rather than from a source distribution (it requires extra packages
to be installed, such as autotools).
yep .. autoreconf and its brethern however I suspect something else is
going on here.
