older kernel made no difference.
However, running mock with a heavy load on server made it work much 
better. Not 100% but nearly. I really don't understand it. Somethings 
not right.

Oddly, I seem remember the same thing happening (improper configuration 
generation) when I build 5.2.4 or 5.2.5 way back - I blamed it on nvidia 
because I removed that module and both arches then built next attempt, 
but that wasn't it this time.

I don't know for that heavy load is what made it work almost 
consistently in mock. I may do some testing and see - this really is 
quite odd.

3 passes of memtest86 no failures, so it's probably not a bad bit in 
memory. That doesn't make sense anyway because if configure is properly 
regenerated is always goes to completion. Some race condition in the 
auto tools?
