After the gnulib-tool invocation, you likely need to insert an 'autoreconf'
invocation. Often it may work without it, but not always.

Yup, this is pretty much the situation that I imagined. Probably the patch
that I've just committed will fix it.

Yes. The "megatestdir" is really huge, as the name says. It is the right
tool for testing the completeness of the dependencies of a single module,
but a situation where two specific modules combined (like here, 'round' and
'vsnprintf') will not be detected even by the megatestdir.

For testing portability, one usually uses the --create-testdir option.
