There is no consensus, but autoreconf tries to address the issue f
``bootstrapping'' the package.  autoreconf 2.53 is not too bad, but
CVS autoreconf does quite a good job.  When I have such dependencies,
I always

        autoreconf -fvi

and the right thing happens.  Gettext 0.11.3 will make it even easier
for packages that depend on Gettext (I mean, having installed 0.11.3
will make it work for _any_ version of Gettext, including oldies such
as 0.10.35 etc.).
