The goal is to use Emacs as my text editor.

The goal is composed into subtask because there's no Emacs package,
and no working debugger.

Building Emacs from is turning into a dead end because it can't
complete its tests (for whatever reason). We can't really investigate
why because there's working debugger.

If the problem is Bash, then I can switch to a different shell that
may work, or I can forgo the steps that include bash. I'm happy to do
whatever the group advises.
