Is server issue? should I change to other rhel8 server and try the same?

It does sound like some sort of server or filesystem problem, yes. The mkdir syscall does not finish and refuses to be interrupted. I don't see any way to modify Gnulib to work around the problem automatically. However, you should be able to sidestep the problem with something either like this:

./configure gl_cv_func_getcwd_path_max=no

or like this:

./configure gl_cv_func_getcwd_path_max=yes

It's not clear to me which of these workarounds would be better for your system.

Didn't we have this same conversation a year ago, with GNU tar, which uses the same Gnulib module? Are you building now on the same system you used a year ago?


Reviewing that earlier conversation prompts me to ask: are you building on a Samba filesystem? There seems to be a problem in this area that is reportedly fixed by upgrading to a newer version of Samba, or by fiddling with Samba settings (not clear). See:
