we make a difference between people who use the source tarball and
developers who do a checkout from the source repository.  The latter
need some additional programs.  The bootstrap scripts ensure the gnulib
files are always updated without care if they were updated in our
repository (we don't really want to care about it) and most important it
avoids to duplicate the same file over different repositories.  I think
these advantages worth the additional costs introduced by the bootstrap
