Unfortunately, I've no idea what may cause these errors. Our nightly
integration ran smoothly and also my manual tests succeeded a minute
ago. What Linux Mint version are you using?

Do you have a special location setting and if yes, could you test with
LC_ALL=en_US? We had some problems with sorting order and collation of
shell wildcards in the past, which originated from locale settings.
Please give the attached patch a try which expands the patch wildcard
via the make builtin, which has a stable sorting order.

This may be an incompatibilty of your distro with Pistachio upstream.
You may try to reproduce the error with a freshly cloned


  cd pistachio/user && autoheader && autoconf

If the error still occurs please open an issue upstream at
