  Most GNU packages have an INSTALL file. That's where I look first for
  installation instructions.

gnulib is not something you install.  Ever.

I guess we mean different things by "install". I just mean "set up in such a way that I can use it without special arrangements". In the case of gnulib, that seems to mean adding gnulib-tool to my PATH.

(It's interesting to note that in the GNU project "install" sometimes means "add a file to a code base.")
