This is all very confusing, I'm afraid.  I am not sure what works
and what does not.

Let's put it this way.  I'd like a story that sounds like this:

   CVS coreutils + CVS gnulib does not work on my platform.  When I do
   "configure; make", the "make" fails with the following symptoms.
   This is because "configure" sets up include files in such-and-such
   a way, and the standard include files work in such-and-such a way,
   and the C compiler has such-and-such properties.  However, if I
   apply the enclosed patch before running "configure", then things
   work fine.

Perhaps if you get some free time you can write down the exact story
along those lines.
