bootstrap revamp

From: Jim Meyering

With these changes, I've removed a lot of old code from coreutils'
bootstrap script.  I expect to commit the latter two changes to gnulib
soon, too, and from there the updated bootstrap script will propagate
to grep, gzip, diffutils, parted, etc.

I verified that bootstrapping from a 'make maintainerclean'd
directory with and without these changes yields effectively
identical trees.  In particular, build-aux/* files like config.sub,
install-sh, etc. (gnulib_extra_files) are still symlinks to the
latest versions.

[PATCH 1/4] maint: append many lib/ and m4/ names to .gitignore
[PATCH 2/4] maint: use gnulib's gettext-h, not the gettext module
[PATCH 3/4] maint: bootstrap: remove some now-unneeded code
[PATCH 4/4] maint: bootstrap: run autopoint and libtoolize *before*
