    Looking at GNU Hello, it appears the problem was
    eliminated by using gnulib

Yes, that's what I did in Hello and that's what I think is ultimately
the best course of action, although not necessarily for this upcoming
release.  As Andreas said, though, it's certainly possible to use
gettext independent of gnulib.

    and removing m4 from CVS.

It's in gnulib/m4.  It's desirable to separate the gnulib-managed m4
macros and code from others.  

    Current grep CVS includes intl/, but GNU Hello doesn't. Is it a good idea
    for grep to follow path and remove intl/ 

As far as intl/ goes, the recommendation from the gettext developers, et
al., as of a few years now, is not to include intl/ code in individual
packages, but instead to use

So that's why it's removed in Hello.  I don't know of any special reason
to keep it in grep.
