Unfortunately you cannot trace until aclocal has run, and
presently gettextize/autopoint need to run before aclocal to
install the m4 files.

In http://mail.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-libtool/2004-04/msg00082.html
Gary and I discussed a possible solution.  The problem is that it
requires changes to M4 if one wants to select macro for one of several
versions of a package (as in the case of Gettext, or even Automake if
aclocal is moved to Autoconf), and that isn't likely to occur soon.

Chicken-and-egg-ly y'rs,
