I think you're probably hitting this bug:

Thanks, that indeed looks like it.

The exit status of subshells is broken in bash-4.3 and bash-4.4 with
--enable-minimal-config. This is a fatal bug that would easily break
most substantial shell scripts, including configure.

The bug was fixed in bash-5.0.
Yes, 5.0 works. Do you know where the fix itself is?

No, but Chet would know.

Chet only commits snapshots to git and not individual fixes, so it's hard to isolate any one fix from the git repo.

 Commit
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/bash.git/commit/?id=61c476d20d32dfd389c79fd4f2161a780685e42e
mentions your report and fix but it definitely does not fix it.

Are you sure? I just did a test compile on that same commit with '--enable-minimal-config --enable-strict-posix-default --enable-alias' and the bug is definitely not there. Then when I back up one commit and run 'make' again, the bug appears.
