Correction: the build succeeded, but you encountered a test failure.

A happy new year to you, too.
Thank you for the testing and the report.
Your system failed the final sub-test of the "colors" test because it
fails to propagate an PIPE signal "out" to the expected exit status of
141. Instead, diff on your system exits with status of 2:

To reproduce it manually, run these commands:

mkfifo fifo
printf '%1000000s-a' > a
printf '%1000000s-b' > b
head -c 10 < fifo > /dev/null &
diff --color=always ---presume-output-tty a b > fifo
echo $?

The final echo should print 141.
Did you configure your shell to ignore SIGPIPE?
