[bug-mailutils] how to download mailutils sources from git for next offl

Please, what is best way for preparing mailutils package for subsequent
build on destination machine, where is only minimal build system (gcc +
devel libraries)? I thin somthin as project has already in its archive:


which has only 2.7 MB size!

What I tried:
I must download sources from git (need actual version), thus I did:

git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/mailutils.git mailutils

I got mailutils sources, it's have ~ 32 MB size, but there aren't some
needed files (./configure, .po files, maybe other). Thus I (IMO) must
run ./bootstrap

bootstrap script performs tons of downloads, some of them:
Cloning into 'doc/imprimatur'
Cloning into 'gint'
Cloning into 'gnulib'           <= why? When I gave '--gnulib-srcdir'
wget 'm4/radius.m4'

Resulted mailutils-3.2.91-git263e2e9f directory has size 154 MB, and even
when I tar it excluding git stuff:

tar cf mailutils-3.2.91-git.tar --exclude-vcs mailutils-3.2.91-git263e2e9f

it has ~ 65 MB size; with xz compression it has 6.2 MB size - still much
more than 2.7 MB size.

I have already installed "gnulib-devel" package, which has dir structure

thus I tried to reduce package size by referring to gnulib with
'--gnulib-srcdir' bootstrap option. It seems as bootstrap want gnulib-tool
to be in directory pointed by --gnulib-srcdir option (/usr/bin/ in my
case). Thus I run:

./bootstrap --gnulib-srcdir=/usr/bin --no-git --no-bootstrap-sync
./bootstrap --gnulib-srcdir=/usr/bin --no-bootstrap-sync

Despite it, bootstrap script still do lot of downloads, including gnulib,
and at end it fail. Outputs from both these bootstraps runs are attached.

How should I do that minimal tarbal, with ./configure for my system
autoconf, with .po files, radius.m4 and all needed files for mailutils
build - and withou other balast?

Thanks, Franta
I hope the Fedora will have a better init and no binary logs
