On further investigation, my question reduces to the following: what
is the standard way to exclude gnulib files from inappropriate
syntax-check tests? As far as I can see, copying parts of
gnulib/cfg.mk into one's project's cfg.mk is the obvious way, but it's
a bit surprising that something like this doesn't happen
automatically, since other autotools integration is managed
