Follow-up Comment #4, bug #58892 (project gettext):

Have you been following the instructions from the HACKING file? It says:

After fetching the sources from the Git repository, peek at the comments in
autogen.sh, then run
  ./gitsub.sh pull

> Nevertemess all nelow distrinuted files are broken.

> gettext-tools/libgettextpo/gnulib-m4/gnulib-comp.m4

No, these files are correct.

It was never documented that you could run 'autoreconf' in an unpacked GNU
gettext tarball. If something is not documented, you can't rely on it.

I disagree. autoreconf is not an essential part of the GNU build system. In
some packages, it works. In some other packages, it works but only with
particular -I options or only when you have installed 'libtool' before. In
some other packages, it is not supported.
