In "autopoint and GREP_OPTIONS" thread, I proposed to use M4sh to
generate autopoint and gettext with common shell functions (including
PATH_SEPARATOR setting) from Autoconf.

I postponed it until the release, since it requires to replace all m4
quotes and also I wondered if it is the recommended way nowadays; it
seems libtool recently changed not to use M4sh.

Do you have any suggestion to proceed?
