I've discovered this problem while testing, too. It only occurs with a
recent checkout of gnulib by the autogen script. I didn't manage to
track this down to the root cause. But I suspect a too recent version
of automake or autoconf (as shipped with Ubuntu 11.04). I then tried
to use the gnulib package shipped by ubuntu and ended up with another
error in libgrep from gnulib.

Later I've had success updating the gettext source package along with
the patch. Maybe you'll try it too with customizing the Fedora Core 13
source package.
