Follow-up Comment #6, bug #51594 (project octave):

Yes, we use identical autotools in mxe-octave, but Automake is a perl program,
and it assumes the host OS perl interpreter is sufficient.

It seems obvious that the difference is this warning, which still allows
Automake to run:

"Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex"

versus this error message, which causes Automake to fail:

"Unescaped left brace in regex is illegal here in regex;"

These messages are coming from perl itself as it's parsing the Automake
program. I'm guessing Philip's unstable system maybe has Perl 6, which doesn't
seem to like Automake 1.11 (which is now 6 years old itself).
