This is normal. 'gperf' is generally not among the tools that a user needs
when configuring from a distributed tarball. It is the responsibility of
whoever creates that tarball (e.g. via "make dist") to run gperf on the
appropriate input files and to include the generated files in the tarball.
The Makefile.am rules included in the gnulib modules ensure this, if
automake's "make dist" target is used to create the tarball.
