bootstrap regression ?

at GnuTLS we have one git submodule that is not 'active' by default -
this is on purpose since we want to init it just in certain cases.

The latest 'bootstrap' script doesn't accept this and stops with an error:
"./bootstrap: some git submodules are not initialized.  Run 'git
submodule init' and bootstrap again."

The breaking change in 'bootstrap' is:

+# Don't proceed if there are uninitialized submodules.  In particular,
+# the next step will remove dangling links, which might be links into
+# uninitialized submodules.
+# Uninitialized submodules are listed with an initial dash.
+if $use_git && git submodule | grep '^-' >/dev/null; then
+  die "some git submodules are not initialized. "     \
+      "Run 'git submodule init' and bootstrap again."

Currently I just commented out these lines, but a proper mechanism would
be nice.

Regards, Tim
