The Autoconf macros provided by gettext now require the file
`config.rpath' by using AC_REQUIRE_AUX_FILE.  One way to satisfy this
requirement would be to have it distributed with Automake, then
  automake --add-missing

would install it if not present.  However, as I read it, `gettextize'
also installs these files.  Should Automake still add config.rpath, as
suggested in Stepan's patch, or do you foresee any incompatibilites this

FWIW, there is another proposed patch to fix these test failures:
further, from CVS HEAD Libtool is also listed in
AC_REQUIRE_AUX_FILE and is not (and should not!) be distributed by

Cheers, and thanks,
