  $ ./gnulib-tool --find cfg.mk
shows that cfg.mk is not contained in any module. This is because it
describes syntax rules for the gnulib source code, not for the Zile
or Hello source code.

You are supposed to use a cfg.mk file of your own in Zile or Hello.

No, gnulib does not have a Makefile.am. It has a couple of Makefiles,
though. They are also not meant to be copied into your package.

gnulib-tool has an option --copy-file that can retrieve a single file
out of the gnulib repository, independently of any modules. It's sometimes
useful for config.guess and config.sub. But please think twice before using
