Hi Gary,

I think your patch is based on an invalid premise:
That somehow "git describe" is at fault.
Actually, the diagnostic you reported suggests that your gnulib
repository has no tag, which means your environment is the cause, not git.
A full clone of gnulib always has at least the v0.0 tag that "git
describe" uses.

Please revert your change and instead fix your local repository.
I find that the commit-count part of that "git describe" output is useful.
Otherwise, it is much harder to compare two gnulib version indicators.
