I suspect this has to do with your Gnulib being too old.  Can you get
the latest with "git clone git://" and use
`gnulib-update' from that directory?

I realize the current situation is not satisfactory.  Now that we're
using Git, I thought we could specify Gnulib as a submodule [0] and have
`' pull that.  That'd be deterministic, but it would force
developers to download the 17 MiB Gnulib repository (only the first time
they bootstrap), which isn't appealing.

An alternative solution is to have one of us (me I guess) commit all the
Gnulib-installed files that we actually use, so that others don't have
to install Gnulib at all.  GnuTLS and other projects work like this.  I
guess we'll do that.
