When building from a dist tarball (, the build fails attempting to build the tests with the error:

./configure "--disable-ftp" "--disable-file" "--disable-ldap" "--disable-rtsp" "--disable-dict" "--disable-telnet" "--disable-tftp" \
  "--disable-pop3" "--disable-imap" "--disable-smb" "--disable-smtp" "--disable-gopher" "--without-ssl" "--without-libpsl" \
  "--without-librtmp" "--disable-ntlm-wb" &&
make check

Oh, I didn't know this. Was it announced somewhere? I'll remove the package from GNU Guix.
