A third possibility I can see is (like you said in your original mail -
sorry I had forgotten about this detail) that you copied
gnulib/build-aux/bootstrap to your_package/bootstrap manually and then ran it.

Then, obviously, your intent was to upgrade to the newest 'bootstrap'. And
since it now consists of 4 files, the script copied the 4 files altogether;
if it did not do that, then you would have encountered an error, like Paul
Eggert did in

Is that understandable?
