The easiest way to fix this consists of two steps:

1) In the gnulib-tool invocation, use the option --libtool.
   Rationale: Libtool libraries *can* be included in shared libraries.

2) Use an Automake *_LIBADD variable to specify that it should be linked
   into your library:
     libfoo_la_LDADD = libgnu.la ...

For an example of this technique, see the libgettextpo:
