In high-level.mk, I find:

1900 # Note that Biber needs to link with libraries like libnsl. However, we
1901 # don't currently build biber from source. So we can't choose the library
1902 # version. But we have the source and build instructions for the 'nsl'
1903 # library. When we later build biber from source, we can easily use them.

Not sure whether the expectation is that the library should be built later on but currently is not.

As a workaround, "dnf install libnsl" solved the problem.
