Thank you. Maybe. I use gnulib-tool to pull the sources into autogen
and then spin off a libopts tarball. That tarball includes the gnulib stuff.
My intention was to be able to unroll it, add in ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS
and have it work. It needs work.

I guess this is where my confusion lives. I see that when I specify
a mess of modules, those modules pull in their "Depends-on:"
modules. Mostly. I'll add snippet/_Noreturn to the autogen stuff
and see where that goes.

Again, thank you so very much for your help. I had gotten to
aimless wandering now knowing how far South I had gotten.

It is actually a computed list, based on what gets pulled in via gnulib-tool.

I need to distribute the man page, despite the fact it is rebuldable.

You have been a great help. Thank you so much. Regards, Bruce
