We need to fix `configure' so that it throws an error in this case.

Yes, this is the same code, but no, I don't think we should use Gnulib
modules.  GNU libunistring was actually started as an independent
project after the corresponding modules had been imported in Gnulib.  I
think libunistring may eventually become a dependency of several
components in GNU, so it makes sense to just share the code among them,
rather than having N different copies of the code.
