Yes, it's because of the way how patch uses gnulib -- it still has a static 
copy.  I was trying to get it to build on most systems before ripping out the 
static copy, switching to automake, using gnulib as intended, etc.  Apparently 
I got several things wrong when trying that.

Any help towards fixing this up properly would be highly appreciated!

No, I was trying to get things running without pulling in another dozen files 
from gnulib.
