Building the argp module fails

This is my first try at using gnulib so I won't be surprised if it's a
user error.

Anyway, I tried importing the argp module into my project and the build
of the module itself always fails.  I've also tried it in an empty
directory with just minimal configure.ac and Makefile.am files and still
no luck. 

Here is stderr:

In file included from argp-eexst.c:25:0:
argp.h:582:1: error: unknown type name ‘_GL_INLINE_HEADER_BEGIN’
argp.h:613:9: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attribute__’ before 
 ARGP_EI void
argp.h:619:9: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attribute__’ before 
 ARGP_EI int
argp.h:631:9: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attribute__’ before 
 ARGP_EI int
argp.h:642:1: error: unknown type name ‘_GL_INLINE_HEADER_END’
argp-eexst.c:30:9: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attribute__’ 
before ‘argp_err_exit_status’
 error_t argp_err_exit_status = EX_USAGE;
make[3]: *** [argp-eexst.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

So, I know that I did everything listed in the reminders after importing
the module (gl_{EARLY,INIT} and lib/Makefile in AC_CONFIG_FILES in
configure.ac; and SUBDIRS=lib and ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = -I m4 in
Makefile.am).  In my actual project, I added the necessary headers and
LDADD flags.  So, I'm reasonably sure that I did everything I needed to
do on my side.

A cursory search suggests that the problem lies in m4/extern-inline.m4,
which seems to not be used.  I do see AC_REQUIRE([gl_EXTERN_INLINE])
inside m4/gnulib-comp.m4.

So, first question is, am I doing something wrong?  If not, can I
provide any more detailed information to help hunt down the problem?
