I regret the delay in responding to this bug report

At a glance this looks like a bug in libtool, not autoconf.  The generated configure script, by itself, does not give me enough information to investigate any further.  Please construct, and then attach, the shortest you can possibly construct that still reproduces the problem.  If this requires an aclocal.m4, attach that as well, and also every file that is m4_include'd by aclocal.m4.  (This may be enough files, all told, that it makes sense to collect them into a tar or zip archive.)

This issue looks like the same as:

autoconf version: 2.71 (Fedora 37)
binutils version: 2.38


checking command to parse /usr/bin/nm -B output from gcc object... ./configure: line 6181:  -e 's/^T .* \(.*\)$/extern int \1();/p' -e 's/^[ABCDGIRSTW][ABCDGIRSTW]* .* \(.*\)$/extern char \1;/p': No such file or directory
