Yes, this file is not used for building. You can ignore it.

This file could be used by gnulib-tool itself for parsing the gnulib-cache.m4
file. Currently this parsing is done through 'sed', thus it does not use
gnulib-tool.m4, but if at some point in the future gnulib-tool were to
use 'autom4te' for the parsing, it would need gnulib-tool.m4.
