Your package emacs failed to build from source in current F28.

This is really weird.  I tried rebuilding the package again.
The first time, it built on everything but aarch64, with this error.

On aarch64
Checking /builddir/build/BUILD/emacs-25.3/lisp/leim/quail/thai.el ...

<many more lines of ../src/bootstrap-emacs[<number>]

make[3]: *** [Makefile:134: ../../leim/../lisp/leim/leim-list.el] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The next time it built on everything, include aarch64, and failed on s390x, with this error.

Trying it again.

Final rebuild worked.
Something flaky, but continual rebuilds gets it done eventually.
