      Description

      I tried `makepkg -i` on Arch Linux's PKGBUILD that uses 23.2, and I tried it myself from otp_src_23.2.tar.gz that can be downloaded from the website.
      I did run `./otp_build autoconf` as per instructed, and I did try `./otp_build all -a` as well.

      I get the following error in all cases:

      === Running configure in /tmp/otp_src_23.2/make ===
      ./configure '--prefix=/usr' '--enable-native-libs' '--enable-builtin-zlib' '--enable-smp-support' '--with-odbc' '--with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config-gtk3' CFLAGS='-march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fno-plt' LDFLAGS='-Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro,-z,now' --disable-option-checking --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir="/tmp/otp_src_23.2/"
      configure: error: cannot find required auxiliary files: install-sh config.guess config.sub
      ERROR: /tmp/otp_src_23.2/make/configure failed!
      

      It cannot seem to find those files even though they do exist in `/tmp/otp_src_23.2/erts/autoconf`.

      Any ideas? I managed to change the `configure` files by hand and point to another directory with those files and it seems to work, but I ran into another error which I have forgotten. In any case, I think you should look into compiling it yourself and see if you can reproduce it.
