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.)

I believe pspp belongs in this list. Even it's latest version.

Why authors don't jump at the chance to use updates freely supplied by other
volunteers, is one of the main mysteries about humanity I've encountered in my
studies of the libre software movement.
