I don't see this problem. I did

hg pull
hg update
cd gnulib
git pull
cd .

followed by changing to my build directory and doing

/path/to/src/directory/configure --prefix=.. ...

and it all seems to works correctly.


I assume gnulib/m4/dos.m4 is now gone correct?

But, is there a still a dos.m4 in your m4 directory? After the maintainer-clean, mine is gone.
