Hi Karl,

Thanks for the feedback.  Actually, gettext.m4 is extremely
confusing.  I'm willing to help making it compatible with both
Autoconves.  I understand you people need to use internal details from
Autoconf, but what we need to do is to see what you need, then settle
an interface for you.

I believe AC_CONFIG_COMMANDS should address your problem, but I can
understand your willing remaining compatible with 2.13 for a while.

Here is my proposal to make Gettext 2.13/2.50 happy.  In two steps.

First, formatting changes.  There are *only* formatting changes.  Not
obvious given the length of the diffs, but trust me, there is not a
single change other than formatting (and changequote actually).

        * configure.in: Do not use changequote.
        * m4/gettext.m4: Do not use changequote.
        Use `#', not `dnl'.
        Quote the names being defined.
        (_GT_GETTEXT_METHOD, _GT_INSTALLED_GETTEXT): New, extracted from

Then, the glue code between 2.13 and 2.50.

        * m4/gettext.m4 (AM_WITH_NLS): Adjust the computation of
        top_srcdir and ac_giveN-srcdir to be Autoconf 2.13/2.50

Upgrading Gettext to use Libtool 1.4, and applying these changes, I
had no problems configuring, making, make checking, and make
distchecking Gettext with 2.50, i.e., Karl's issue is fixed.

BTW, what is the official repo?
