OK, this one unpacks fine.

1) The error occurs in directory libopts/, which contains a hand-made
use of gnulib modules - without use of gnulib-tool. This is not
supported, because internals of modules can change without notice.
Instead, please take a look at this documentation section:

2) You hand-imported module 'stdnoreturn'. But it depends on module
'snippets/_Noreturn'. You didn't hand-import this module correctly.
Namely, the 'Files: lib/_Noreturn.h' should translate into an action
of yours that copies gnulib/lib/_Noreturn.h to libopts/_Noreturn.h.

3) The EXTRA_DIST addition in libopts/Makefile.am is correct.
gnulib-tool would do it for you, but you chose to do it by hand.

4) Later on, "make dist" fails with

  make[4]: Entering directory '/tmp/gnu-pw-mgr-v2.4-dirty/doc'
  cp: cannot stat './gnu-pw-mgr.1': No such file or directory

That's your turn again. Unrelated to gnulib.
