This is one way to do it, however it's obviously a pain for people checking
out emacs.

Another way would be to do what used to be done, and simply keep separate
copies of regex.[ch] in emacs, merging back and forth with the official
gnulib copies as necessary.

If changes to regex.[ch] occur somewhat rarely, I'd say the latter method is
