As I understand it, gnulib-tool itself will handle everything.

At least it is supposed to, as long as the nodist/nobase/noinst_include_HEADER 
declarations are set up correctly in the module files. Of course, only the 
public headers should be installed, and therefore only they should have their 
include guards substituted accordingly.

If that's not already the case, then there is a bug in the topic/libposix 
changeset 328513b3a6d6612984b1931ab27466e27014e022 (which adds the HEADER 
primaries to the module files), or perhaps even a bug in the Makefile.am 
sections of the affected module files (i.e. the ones that are causing private 
header files to be installed), which will require a fix on the topic/libposix 
branch prior to merging.
