Did you intend for the 'grantpt' and 'pt_chown' modules (marked as LGPL)
to depend on 'idpriv-drop' which is marked as GPL?  I'm not sure what
you meant above though, so I could be missing something, but I got these

gnulib-tool: warning: module grantpt depends on a module with an incompatible 
license: idpriv-drop
gnulib-tool: warning: module pt_chown depends on a module with an incompatible 
license: idpriv-drop

Btw, there is also some errors when building these modules:

gllib/Makefile.am:4103: `pkglibexec_PROGRAMS' is used but `pkglibexecdir' is 
gllib/Makefile.am:4104: variable `pt_chown_LDADD' is defined but no program or
gllib/Makefile.am:4104: library has `pt_chown' as canonic name (possible typo)
