Problem with import-gnulib.sh

(I hope this is going to the right place for discussions.)

I'm looking at making some modifications to 'find'.  Looking at the
instructions in README-hacking, I do:

    $ git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/findutils
    Cloning into 'findutils'...
    remote: Counting objects: 18835, done.        
    remote: Compressing objects: 100% (3464/3464), done.        
    remote: Total 18835 (delta 14976), reused 18835 (delta 14976)        
    Receiving objects: 100% (18835/18835), 9.33 MiB | 1.25 MiB/s, done.
    Resolving deltas: 100% (14976/14976), done.
    $ cd findutils
    $ sh import-gnulib.sh
    Checking the submodule directory layout... 
    You have a ./gnulib directory which does not appear to be a submodule.

    Findutils now manages the gnulib source code as a git submodule.

    If you are still using the directory layout in which the git tree for
    gnulib lives in ./gnulib-git/, please fix this and re-run import-gnulib.sh.
    The fix is very simple; please delete both ./gnulib/ and ./gnulib-git.

    This wasn't done automatically for you just in case you had any local 

Now I thought that Git couldn't represent a directory containing no
files, but the error message is correct, the "gnulib" directory exists
and is empty after the git-clone.

So something needs to be fixed here, either the structure of the Git
file tree, or the code in import-gnulib.sh.
