Re: Production Version 42.0 Fails to Build

I compared the git and tarball versions of emacspeak-eww.el and I
didn't see much differences. So I built a new stand-alone directory to
hold the extracted contents of the 42.0 tarball. With one test, I
copied emacspeak-eww.el from my current git repo and did the make
sequence as normal. That build also failed with the same errors. So
there must be something else broken in the 42.0 tarball.

I did a complete refresh  of this working directory and did the make
clean; make config; make steps and captured the entire output. That
listing is over 700 lines so I hesitate to attach to the list here. I
wonder what else could be broken with this emacspeak-42.0.tar.bz2

At least I can build from git and that is what I use. I just wanted to
be able to put up a working build package for the production/stable
version of emacspeak for any Arch Linux users who might not want to
use the developer version.

I’ve run into problems with systems I’ve built as a normal user, but then run install as root, which has created root owned artifacts. Later, when I do a make clean as a normal user to update or build again, the root owned artefacts are not removed and you get unpredictable results.
