Hi Jim,

Thanks very much for the info and the patches!


Well, this is a question -- is it better for GNU packages in general to
include intl, or let users install it if they want it?  I had the
impression it was better to include it, but maybe these days it's better
to leave it out.  Certainly I'm happy to make distributions smaller :).

    autoreconf --verbose --install --force || exit

This will overwrite a newer texinfo.tex/config.guess/etc. (from gnulib)
with an older one.  Until the serial number stuff is there, my
understanding is that autoreconf and gnulib don't get along.

    Use something like this derivation of bison's bootstrap script:

Yikes, this seems unbelievably complex!  Renaming and removing files,
running cvs ... these don't seem like things a bootstrap script should
do.  Well, anyway, thanks for sending it, I will study.  It definitely
helps in understanding gnulib.
