aliBuild version: 1.8.7 (ubuntu2004_x86-64)
Description: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS Release: 20.04 Codename: focal
texinfo/focal,now 6.7.0.dfsg.2-5 amd64 [installed]
I tried pre-compiled builds for Ubuntu with aliBuild 1.8.7.
It seems trying to build autools, regardless the downloaded package.
I can guess this is somehow similar to https://alice.its.cern.ch/jira/browse/O2-2440 and will go away with its fix.
However even manual installation fails, it might be related to the default file encoding used by texinfo since v6.7.
Tried a bit of unsuccessful debugging: e.g. I found very few similar issues but, for instance: m4, texinfo build failure · Issue #21163 · void-linux/void-packages · GitHub.
Build log attached.

Thanks in advance.
