after cloning the repo or after 'make distclean', a './configure && make' stops with:
configure: error: source directory already configured; run "make distclean" there first
configure: error: .././../../gnulib/configure failed for build-gnulib-gdbserver
configure: error: ./configure failed for gdbserver
make: *** [Makefile:10828: configure-gdb] Error 1
make: Leaving directory '/home/oms/src/binutils-gdb'
make: *** [Makefile:852: all] Error 2
A second 'make' then continues and succeeds.
IMO, it should either be fixed or documented in README.
'make' is aliased to 'make -j12'.
OS is Debian unstable (upgrade from 07-11-2019)
"./configure" is currently broken.
We're debating what to do about this on the gdb@ list.
Feel free to weigh in there if you have an opinion.
I found an earlier dup.
