The messages that followed were a consequence of extra -I options that
were added to solve problems caused by the two stdio files not having
been installed in lib.


My best guess is that there were module dependency changes. Likely, I
directly depended on a module that was indirectly depended upon by
another. That other was listed, but when its dependencies changed, my
build got broken. I do not know how hard it would be to construct a
gnulib wrapper around autoreconf that could check for missing gnulib
stuff, but it'd have made my life easier. Basically, "tee(1)" the
output into a temp file and, on error. search through it for gl_[A-Z]*
macro failures and for missing files that live in gnulib/lib. I'd get
"a round tuit" late this fall, if it'd be received.
