     Are you sure?  I'm pretty sure that, if so, that's a bug in
     iconv_open: Bruno Haible was just saying on bug-gnulib how those
     files *do* get distributed:

Well try it for yourself. If I mv /usr/bin/gperf /usr/bin/_gperf, then
I get:

$ make
make  all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/Scratch/jmd/pspp-confidence-bug'
Making all in gl
make[2]: Entering directory `/Scratch/jmd/pspp-confidence-bug/gl'
gperf -m 10 ./iconv_open-aix.gperf > iconv_open-aix.h-t
/bin/sh: gperf: command not found
make[2]: *** [iconv_open-aix.h] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/Scratch/jmd/pspp-confidence-bug/gl'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/Scratch/jmd/pspp-confidence-bug'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I was surprised too.  Hence my comments on theebug-gnulib list.
