    Well, Debian packages snapshots of it. It's useful,

No, it is insanely wrong, defeating the purpose of gnulib and causing
impossible-to-track bugs due to out-of-sync sources.  But let's not go
into that again, you can find the discussions in the archives if you care.

    because gnulib-tool is on PATH. That's all I want really, I want
    gnulib-tool to be on my PATH and I was asking what I have to do to
    make that work.

ln -s /gnulib/checkout/gnulib-tool ~/bin  # adapted as needed, of course

That's it.

I agree that we should put this bit of info into the top-level
README and/or the manual or wherever.
