bug#22070: Recreating release 1.6 from git

Ok, last question and then you can close this.

I'm trying to verify the correct version of gnulib is being used,
but I can't see anything in the bootstrap script that
guarantees this. E.g., I expected to find a gnulib commit id
or tag or some such that specified the version of gnulib that
was used when the original 1.6 release was made.
Do you know how this is done?

Thanks again!
