hi there

none of these tools are needed to build gengetopt, they're only needed
in some cases if you want to contribute to gengetopt development.
They are not even used by gengetopt itself during its execution.

furthermore, autotools are needed if you get gengetopt via CVS and build
it from CVS sources.

If you download the .tar.gz package instead, you don't need them.

you need to build gengetopt"
