[ntp:questions] ARM64 cross-compile autogen issues

I'm cross-compiling ntp-4.2.8p10 for aarch64 using Debian as the build machine. I can build it fine with the native compiler, but using the ARM cross-compiler I get this:

make[4]: Leaving directory '/home/asmith/xds/rootfs85-arm/sandbox/ntp/xbuild/sntp/libopts'

Since it works for the native build, I'm wondering what I could be missing in building for ARM64. I can get past this error by commenting the mdoc portions of sntp-opts.def and the other def files that fail after doing so, but I'm not happy with that kind of hack.

I've used this ARM64 toolchain to build many other projects successfully.  Any help appreciated,
