There is no long-term stable interface between *.m4 and Makefile.in.in.
This means, you need to take both from the same version. And gnulib here

OK. Is po/Makefile.in.in in gettext? If not, do I need to obtain
gettext from CVS as well?
It's known, and is to some extent unavoidable (because caring too much
about backward compatibility can kill progress).
No problem. Is there a list anywhere in the CVS sources for gnulib
that would tell me which versions of the tools I should/should not be
At the moment I am using the version of gettext that comes with by
Debian distribution, but it that is a poor strategy, it may be worth
