Interesting.   How are you using --config-cache?

I just make a point of using it the first time I build a new
worktree.  Thereafter, I just use "make", and if it needs to re-run
configure, it uses -C automatically.

Thanks for the explanation!

I see it now in Makefile, which has cache_file=... After autogen.sh, it's /dev/null, but after an additional './configure --config-cache --with-native-compilation', cache_file equals config.cache.

I couldn't see a way to set the cache_file with autogen.sh, but anyway that's not too bad.

Is this a bug, or am I doing it wrong?

It's some kind of bug, but I'm not sure where.  I have this from time
to time on one particular system where I regularly build Emacs, but
not on others.  Usually, a second "make" right after that succeeds.

I always thought that it's because some system-wide snafu unrelated to
Emacs on that single system.  But now I'm not so sure.

I guess it's indeed a bug.  When I

touch configure

it says

running CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh /bin/sh ./configure --config-cache --with-native-compilation --no-create --no-recursion

and fails in the same way as described before.

I'll submit a bug for that.
