Sometimes it is necessary. I don’t know why but some changes to the
codebase have required ‘make bootstrap’ for as long as I’ve been
building Emacs. Usually a number of people post to emacs-dev asking
why they can’t build master any more.

That’s very strange. I have harfbuzz installed using brew and
configure is clever enough to ignore it.

Was this error before or after doing make bootstrap?
