nanobsd error while performing installworld: "No such file or directory"

Worked fine with FreeBSD 13 but not with FreeBSD 13.1

Exits with the following error:

Code:

One more path to check from the Makefile:
/usr/src/contrib/flex/
Does this exist on FreeBSD 13.1?
Yes this exists.
Code:
ls -lh /usr/src/contrib/flex

Interestingly I have just run
Code:
./nanobsd.sh -c test.nano
Where test nano contains the following (So that the output disk image is large enough)
Code:
UsbDevice generic 12000
echo "NANO_MEDIASIZE: ${NANO_MEDIASIZE}"
And it completed successfully.
So it must be something in my customization file that makes it fail.
 
Are you using any WITHOUT='s in your config ?? You may need to add them later in the build process.

I copy my /etc/make.conf in to position after building world and kernel.
 
My nano config file has the following CONF* in. Is that what you mean?

Code:
CONF_BUILD='
NO_NETGRAPH=YES
NO_PAM=YES
'

CONF_INSTALL='
NO_ACPI=YES
NO_BLUETOOTH=YES
NO_CVS=YES
NO_FORTRAN=YES
NO_HTML=YES
NO_LPR=YES
MK_MAN=no
NO_SENDMAIL=YES
NO_SHAREDOCS=YES
NO_EXAMPLES=YES
MK_INSTALLLIB=no
NO_CALENDAR=YES
NO_MISC=YES
NO_SHARE=YES
'

CONF_WORLD='
NO_BIND=YES
NO_KERBEROS=YES
NO_GAMES=YES
NO_RESCUE=YES
NO_LOCALES=YES
NO_SYSCONS=YES
NO_INFO=YES
'
 
My nano config file has the following CONF* in. Is that what you mean?
Yes these control what happens in certain stages of your build.
Pull the compiling tools out of the build too soon and guess what happens.

CONF_BUILD='
CONF_INSTALL='
CONF_WORLD='
What worries me is I see you have ACPI WITHOUT. (NO_ACPI=YES)
You better know your hardware before messing there. Most modern hardware won't even boot without ACPI.
ACPI has several sub-branches like ACPI thermal or ACPI video.
You might want to disable them instead of all of ACPI.


Which ones are profiling libraries?
I believe he is talking about lex, flex and re2c.
None of that should be needed for an embedded build.

This is what get printed out when I execute nanobsd.sh

I just tried removing all the CONF_* configurations and it completed with no errors. I'll work through and see if I can narrow down the one causing issues.

The nanobsd.sh and legacy.sh scripts changed between FreeBSD 13 and 13.1. I've copied them from 13 into my environment and now nano.sh completes successfully.
Maybe there is a bug in those scripts somewhere. I'll install a fresh 13.1 and see it the problem persists.
