It's 64-bit linux (NixOS.org). I did a few more trials, and the real problem isn't the CVE fix, but the (1) autoreconfiguration or (2) ./bootstrap needed when applying that CVE patch or building from git, respectively (the patch also changes a Makefile.am).

Side note: now I see it will be probably best for nix(os) packaging to avoid either by just using 2.21 tarball and patching only the kwset.c file. That approach succeeds completely with:
# TOTAL: 138
# PASS:  119
# SKIP:  19
# XFAIL: 0
# FAIL:  0
# XPASS: 0
# ERROR: 0

I hope the following will help to make the issue clearer.

It's perhaps that some dependencies are different than you expect (or missing). In the case of bootstrapping, e.g. maybe you expect a different gnulib version -- I didn't know which, so I chose the latest tag v0.1, etc. Builds on nix(os) are sandboxed, so only explicitly passed packages are visible to the builder, and no networking is allowed, etc.

Case (1): 2.21 tarball + patch + autoreconf. I'm sorry I didn't read the logs properly, but the tests *do* pass, only a few lines later there is what fails:

GEN      check_executable_TESTS
the above test scripts are not executable

Case (2): git on 2.21 or master + gnulib v0.1 + ./bootstrap.
There it's getting some segfaults and tells me:

# TOTAL: 86
# PASS:  49
# SKIP:  32
# XFAIL: 1
# FAIL:  4
# XPASS: 0
# ERROR: 0
