Dear GNU gettext devs,

I have found that when attempting to cross-compile for mingw32 under debian
x86_64, I get the following errors when building getext-0.19.3, as unpacked
with dpkg-source -x  on  gettext_0.189.3-2

I get:
CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd . && /bin/bash
/home/pcuser/mingw32/deps/gettext-0.19.3/build-aux/missing aclocal-1.14 -I m4
-I ../m4 -I gnulib-m4
sh: 1: ../build-aux/git-version-gen: not found
configure.ac:25: error: AC_INIT should be called with package and version
/usr/share/aclocal-1.14/init.m4:29: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE is expanded from...
configure.ac:25: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
aclocal-1.14: error: echo failed with exit status: 1
Makefile:1275: recipe for target 'aclocal.m4' failed
make[2]: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory

This seems to stem from the use of AC_INIT in the gettext-runtime subfolder,
where no version number is supplied. The attached patch seems to "fix" the
problem (and is likely not doing it correctly). I am uncertain if this is the
root cause, as I am hardcoding the version number which seems not quite

Also, I note that the primary gettext configure.ac does not supply a version
number either - I don't understand why this is needed in one and not the
other. I assume this is because aclocal is not running on the base configure?
