Follow-up Comment #7, bug #51594 (project octave):

Ok, according to the Automake NEWS file:

New in 1.15.1:

* Bugs fixed:

  - The code has been adapted to remove a warning present since Perl
    5.22 stating that "Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated".
    This warning has become an hard error in Perl 5.26 (bug#22372).

So Philip probably has Perl 5.26 or newer, not necessarily Perl 6 (that was
just a guess). My system is still at Perl 5.24.

We could continue using Automake 1.11 and patch this one regex, which seems
simple and safest, or try updating mxe-octave to new Autoconf / Automake,
which may break some builds of other packages.
