Guys, sorry it took a while to jog my memory, but this was a semi common
problem for packages that hadn't been updated in a while [1].  The
problem comes from them not having updated gnulib, if I remember

In any case, if you look in the GSRC's Makefile for dico, you'll see
that there's a "pre-configure" target which takes care of the problem.

So, the question is why "pre-configure" is not running for Jean Louis.


[1] See: cpio, cssc, dico, diffutils, grub, idutils, inetutils,
libiconv, m4, mailutils, myserver, rush, & tar (one or two of those may
no longer be affected so this step could be removed; inetutils has seen
some releases, so it's probably fine.)
