Configure doesn't normally produce that amount of output, that looks
as if you have selected certain lines from config.log ?

Sorry, no.  I did wonder about "disk full", but if you are running
as root then that only fails when the disk really _is_ full, so
config.log would not have been fully written.

Usually, "only changed the difference" suggests that the builder
missed something.  But in this case, I find it hard to imagine that
any of the major changes (adding libffi, meson, ninja, python3,
openssl) have affected file, which I generally class in Rincewind
style as "boring" (and much-appreciated because of that).

Do you get the same problem with whichever version was in 8.1, or
with the current 5.33 ?

PS - we call them versions of the book, or releases.  The word
'handbook' implies a certain non-GPL'd OS ;-)
