Its very unreasonable for sagemath to require users to create a google account just to get support. Why not use github or an independent website? Just because they are closely tied with google doesn't mean they have to force users to bend to their will.
Any way, the problem is that I get this error when trying to build sagemath on fedora 28:

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42988#post-id-42988Somebody else reported a problem with building `ppl-1.2.p1` recently. Maybe it's the same problem. Could you post the output of `cat /proc/cpuinfo`? Also, perhaps you could post somewhere (e.g. a pastebin) a copy of the `config.log` file for ppl?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42934#post-id-42934FWIW I just did a build from scratch of Sage 8.3.rc0 on a fresh Fedora 28 install and it went fine. Not that that's of immediate help; obviously something went wrong for you. Just mentioning that as a data point--that you might start looking for reasons your system might be different from a fresh install--if there are any odd packages you have installed, etc. Not that that should matter *in principle*, but it might.Wed, 11 Jul 2018 15:30:40 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42934#post-id-42934Comment by Iguananaut for <p>I've spent more than an hour trying to create a google account so that I can report serious problems I'm having with compiling the sagemath source code but google won't let me create an account.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42929#post-id-42929It is unfortunate nowadays that Google Groups' web interface makes it very difficult to figure out how to send a message to a groups without a Google account :( One secret is you can join the group with an arbitrary e-mail address by appending `/join` to the URL, like https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/sage-support/join and you can post your non-google e-mail address. Also, as @slelievre wrote you can send an e-mail directly to the group but I believe first time posters are moderated, so it might not appear to go directly through.Wed, 11 Jul 2018 12:44:45 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42929#post-id-42929Comment by number123 for <p>I've spent more than an hour trying to create a google account so that I can report serious problems I'm having with compiling the sagemath source code but google won't let me create an account.

Note also that Fedora 28 currently packages Sage 8.0, see
- [SageMath package in Fedora](https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/sagemath)
Issues with building under Fedora 28 sometimes give rise to tickets, see:
- [Sage Trac tickets whose summary contains "Fedora"](https://trac.sagemath.org/query?order=id&desc=1&summary=~fedora)
In particular
- [Sage Trac ticket 25391: SageMath fails to build on on Fedora 28 with gcc 8.1](https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/25391)
was fixed in the second half of June 2018.
If you were building Sage 8.2, I would suggest building Sage 8.3.rc0 instead.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42954#post-id-42954Issues can be reported to the Sage Trac issue tracker;
it's also okay to report here on Ask Sage, especially when
in doubt, so that more experienced Sage developers can
assess whether issues reported by users belong to user
support or are bugs that should be dealt with.Thu, 12 Jul 2018 07:09:25 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42954#post-id-42954Comment by number123 for <p>Not sure if you were trying to build the latest stable version (Sage 8.2)

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42913#post-id-42913I wanted to build the latest development version which I assume is Sage 8.3.rc0 so I cloned the repo from github and checked out the `develop` branch. I think this is the right way to do it because when I tried cloning the actual sage git repo, I got errors. If this is not the right way to clone Sage 8.3rc0, feel free to let me know? Thanks for the links, fedora's rpm package is a year+.Wed, 11 Jul 2018 04:58:18 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/42894/unable-to-compile-sage/?comment=42913#post-id-42913
