Yup.  But I'm not sure I understand how gnulib works, but I tried to
mimic another package, and the command Bruno quoted works for the argp
module locally.

The code definitely has problems, but like I said, I think it would be
better to add it to CVS first and then fix the problems (which can't
be that many or that hard to solve).

If someone wants to see good code up front, I will start work on that.

This sounds like the best approach to me.

Btw, please don't commit my last patch, as it had some cosmetic
problems (e.g., argp.m4 title was unchanged from acl.m4...).  To
reduce bandwidth, I can send a new patch directly to someone who wants
to add it.
