Hi all,

I am getting this error message:

What's wrong?  Do I need to install an older version of gettext?

I still do not know what the issue is, but I've kludged around the problem.
A real, full-fledged, honest-to-God kludge:  when gnulib-tool is done
assembling the m4 directory, I copy over intl.m4 and gettext.m4 from my
/usr/local/share/aclocal directory.  It all works now.

The problem is related (somehow) to gnulib-comp.m4.
The original flavor of that file lives in gnulib/m4 and does not contain
the string GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION, but the installed version does:

$ find sharutils-bld -type f|xargs fgrep AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION
sharutils-bld/m4/gnulib-comp.m4:  AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION([0.18.1])

Since "all" is the gettext maintainer and I am "all" out of time for this,
I leave it to you-all to please be kind enough to figure out how
to fix it once and for all. :)  Thank you!!

Regards, Bruce
