Thanks, done.

Alternatively, it would help if I could tell gnulib-tool that it won't
need to build a library at all, namely because the project in question
(vc-dwim) doesn't use any compiled code, merely a couple of the nice
helper modules.  If you like that idea, I can try to write a patch to
this end.  Not sure though whether gnulib-tool may be able to infer that
no objects are needed, or whether a switch is needed.

Put another way: gnulib is so useful that it's useful to non-C projects
in its own right!  :-)

Cheers, and thanks for maintaining it!
