Apparently, cloning gnulib from git ( try it internally) has
some problems.
At least in Debian Sid, gnulib is present in the repositories so it
can be installed easy and fast. Once gnulib is installed, ./
must be executed with the flags:

--no-git --gnulib-srcdir=/path/to/gnulib

--gnulib-srcdir is mandatory although gnulib is installed on standard path
