Hi Paul,

With ./configure gl_cv_func_getcwd_path_max=no, the step passed without hanging.
I was able to get rcs configure, make and installed. 
Just need to verify if 5.10.0 fix ci/co problem among our team.

I don't think we have conversation for GNU tar before and the rhel8 server that 
I am building rcs base on is a new system.
Thanks so much for all your help!

Thanks,
Kelly

    It does sound like some sort of server or filesystem problem, yes. The 
mkdir 
    syscall does not finish and refuses to be interrupted. I don't see any way 
to 
    modify Gnulib to work around the problem automatically. However, you should 
be 
    able to sidestep the problem with something either like this:

    ./configure gl_cv_func_getcwd_path_max=no

    or like this:

    ./configure gl_cv_func_getcwd_path_max=yes

    It's not clear to me which of these workarounds would be better for your 
system.


    Didn't we have this same conversation a year ago, with GNU tar, which uses 
the 
    same Gnulib module? Are you building now on the same system you used a year 
ago?

    Reviewing that earlier conversation prompts me to ask: are you building on 
a 
    Samba filesystem? There seems to be a problem in this area that is 
reportedly 
    fixed by upgrading to a newer version of Samba, or by fiddling with Samba 
    settings (not clear). See:
