You require a build file using the `-c build.lua` option.Your
configuration file /home/me/.config/make4ht/config.lua is loaded

> [INFO]    make4ht: Using configuration file: /home/me/.config/make4ht/config.lua
> [INFO]    mkutils: Using build file     /home/me/.config/make4ht/config.lua

but then make4ht tries to open a second config file build.lua, that
you required by the `-c` option,  and it seems that make4ht cannot
find it:

> [INFO]    mkutils: Cannot open config file      config.lua     <-----???

You don't need the `-c` option to load
/home/me/.config/make4ht/config.lua, as it is loaded automatically.
