I think it is a bug in doom or straight, or at least an assumption that
turns out to be wrong. They are assuming the elisp is runnable from git,
but in fact it needs to run make to create notmuch-version.el. I think
the straight recipe could specify a ":pre-build" step to build
notmuch-version.el. I attach a Makefile snippet that shows how to build
the file without running configure. You'd still need make, git, and sed. (application/octet-stream)
