If you've built the software, then
find the line that looks like the "-" line, and change it
so that it looks like a "+" line.  Then type "make".
(If all this is beyond you, then don't worry too much; the bug
will be fixed in the next version of coreutils.)

That sounds very much like a bug, perhaps a different bug, though I'm
afraid I can't reproduce it since I don't have your system.
