Good point.  I ended up using `AC_CONFIG_LINKS' to have a `config.h'
linked to `some-special-name.h'.

Possibly.  Still, that is one of the few things that doesn't work
automagically with Gnulib, so it's quite surprising at first.  ;-)

Alternatively, maybe `gnulib-tool --import' should say something like
"Make sure `lib/config.h' is available, e.g., by adding
`AC_CONFIG_LINKS(bla bla)' to your `configure.ac' file."
