Inspecting the failed work dir, I found this:

ASDocGen ERROR: Cannot open file 
 for writing!
 Please check permissions or contact your sysadmin !

in AfterStep-2.1.2/src/ASDocGen/, which is apparently where it
hides the record of what it's doing when generating roff docs.

There's also a log.html, which is empty.

I'm guessing the problem is that it's trying to use $HOME, or that
it's trying to use the homedir from getpwuid(), or both. The latter is
not writeable by the bulk build user in my setup, and probably also in

Former is not used (I've confirmed with chmod -w ${HOME}), and later is 
 Why FAKEHOME is not writable with builk build (it's in ${WRKDIR})?
Then I tried to create FAKEHOME without write permission,
but still built&installed fine.
