Dear Bruno,

thank you very much for the quick fix.

I am currently testing it.  I still have a problem with the Makefile lines eventually produced by gl_CONDITIONAL_HEADER in m4/gnulib-common.m4.

Am I supposed to set ${gl_source_base_prefix} somewhere?  If it helps:  I am using a configuration based on bootstrap and I have set source_base (and tests_base) in bootstrap.conf.

Fixed through this patch.

You are right, %C% would also fix it. But since we are generating the Makefile
part anyway and know where it is located, we can just as well put in the actual
relative subdirectory. This makes the generated code easier to understand.
