+1 from me here, absolutely

And once that is done, you might also want to try to have the
bootstrapping process delegate some more work to the well-tested
'bootstrap' script that is provided by gnulib.

Some other random issues I noticed perusing the 'autogen.sh' script:

  - The 'build-aux/fixaclocal' script is invoked throughout, but
    the comments in that script state that it's only required with
    aclocal from Automake 1.10, while the rest of the build
    infrastructure assumes Automake >= 1.11.

  - Cosmetic issue: in the heading comments, "1.13" is not reported
    among the supported Automake versions.

Finally, it would also be nice to update all the Gettext code to use
$(MKDIR_P) instead of the deprecated $(mkdir_p) ;-)
