Follow-up Comment #1, bug #60975 (project gnuastro):

Have you previously bootstrapped Gnuastro as root? And are now building as a
normal user? You can check with the command below:

ls -l doc/authors.texi doc/authors.texi doc/stamp-vti

These files are created automatically during the build, so if you bootstrapped
Gnuastro with root permissions in the first time, their owner is 'root' and
now that you are building as a normal user, you can't re-write over them.

If this is the case, you need to become root, then run 'git clean -fxd' (to
delete all files that are not under version control). Then become a normal
user again and bootstrap Gnuastro. 

I hope this fixes the problem ;-).
