While the use of gnulib without gnulib-tool is possible in theory,
it requires a lot of manual, tedious checking and bookkeeping: to verify
that all the modules listed among the dependencies have been included,
and that all respective autoconf macros have been invoked. Mistakes
in this process introduce compilation or link problems on some platforms.
