I ran into this bug when building Sed via GNU Guix running on top of
Fedora 31.  This means I was building Sed version 4.7 from the release

The generated Makefile did set “CONFIG_HEADER”.  However, I noticed that
“CONFIG_HEADER” was absent from the list of variables propagated into
the test environment (see the “TEST_ENVIRONMENT” variable in
“testsuite/local.mk”).  Adding it there allowed the test to be skipped
rather than causing a hard error.

Hope that helps!  Let me know if you need more information or anything,
as I should be able to reproduce this error easily.
