I'm one of the maintainers of the c-ares project at https://github.com/c-ares/c-ares and have had a couple of users report this issue.  At first glance it appears to be an issue introduced between automake 1.16.1 and 1.16.3.

I actually did some testing on MacOS 11.4 with automake 1.16.4 and can reproduce the issue.  Whereas 1.16.1 on CentOS 8 it works fine. I haven't tried backing off automake to 1.16.1 on MacOS.

Reported issues for c-ares are here:


Rerunning autoreconf -fi appears to succeed, but then when building after configure, make immediately throws an error so it clearly didn't actually work.

The autotools build hasn't been touched in years short of a code reorganization a year or so ago.

I haven't had time yet to investigate if there is an older version of c-ares that works with the newer automake to try to figure out a trigger.

I know this isn't much information to go off of, but the user just told me they had opened this issue so I wanted to chime in as I'm not sure when I'll have a chance to investigate further.
