The generate and distcheck targets seem to work fine with the latest master 
(dd1d2ea275497e47d1cf4b2d1295cb789c360a7e) in a fresh clone. I noticed some 
strange behavior (into an unclean clone) but It's too late now. I'll give 
some feedback later on.

Some late-night-thoughts:

* As for COPYING: adding build-aux files to the repository could remove the 
gnulib dependency (by simply adding a gnulib-tool check on bootstrap). I'll 
build the required patches if you agree.

* I've a git->AUTHORS generator script that could come handy for the AUTHORS 
file ... I'll give some lifting to it if you like the idea (do we have 
particular requirements?).

I'll give a look ASAP (ax_fstruct_fsemun ? ax_struct_semun ! ... that 005f 
seems a badly quoted underscore too me ... buh ... too late now, bed is 
calling and I feel confused ;-) ).

Have a good night,
