Hi Loic,

        Is frustration :-) 

I have shared your frustration.

    However, the documentation is so terse 

Did you look at gnulib.texi (in cvs)?  I agree it is quite terse, but
there is some "getting started" info there.

        What I merely need is to import the config.rpath file from aux-dir

If that is all you want to do, you don't really need or want
gnulib-tool.  g-t works by modules, not files, and there is no module
containing just config.rpath.

If you look in the gnulib/config directory in cvs, you will see a
relatively little script called srclist-update which copies files *into*
gnulib from outside sources.  You could use that just as well to copy
from gnulib.

(As it happens, just FYI, config.rpath is itself copied in by the gnulib
srclist-update, from gettext.)

BTW, you might also consider copying some of the other build-aux files,
for instance config.guess, config.sub, and texinfo.tex are often
relevant and often updated, if you're not already getting them.
