No, I don't have a dos.m4 file anywhere in the source or build trees

Did you do git pull in the gnulib directory then run make
maintainer-clean? If so, I think the problem could have been that
when you updated the gnulib directory, the dos.m4 file was removed,
then when you ran make maintainer-clean, there were changes that
required updating Makefiles, but that failed because there were
missing files. Maybe the problem would have been avoided if you did
the maintainer-clean step before updating.

Sounds right.

To fix it I ..

hg status | grep '^? ' | sed "s/^? /rm /g" | /bin/sh
hg pull ; hg update -C

... and now the build is proceeding as usual.
