Follow-up Comment #5, bug #37307 (project make):

I don't think I'm being clear.  The contents of the config directory in the
distribution are not kept in the GNU make source tree (check: you won't see
them there).

They are copied into the distribution when the person who creates the
distribution runs "make dist", and that is what is released.  So the versions
of those macros are from whatever version of autoconf is installed on the
system of the person who does the "make dist", when that is done.  I believe
that the version in configure.in is merely a lower-bound; if you don't have at
least that version installed then the autoreconf will fail.  But if you have
the newer version installed, then that's what will be used.

Or, do you think that there are multiple versions of the GETTEXT macros
available in each gettext installation and the one associated with the version
in configure.in is used?  That could be true: I don't know.
