thanks for trying! I, too, have the impression that the make dependencies are
somewhat incomplete, but it's very hard to tell with all that magic Automake
and gnulib interaction. These packages are great, but they really introduce a
hell of a lot of complexity.

Personally, I don't mind depending on gnulib.

Yes, that would be great! The AUTHORS files should contain the names of all
people who have committed to the Git repository or who are listed in a macro's
copyright line. It's not particularly hard to extract that information, but it
still has to be done. As of now, the AUTHORS just says "TODO". :-)

Take care,
