      And the blows up with this error:

        gnulib-tool: option --conditional-dependencies is not supported
                     with --with-tests

   Yes, i see this, too (almost every day).  You can see me complaining
   half-heartedly (and in the end w/o further understanding):

   IIUC, ‘--conditional-dependencies’ is an optimization and so can be
   safely dropped.

Good news!  It turns out there was a bug in gnulib-tool after all:

So, after a "git pull" of gnulib, we can leave that particular
invocation alone.  However, still fails a little further
down due to another Gnulib change.  Here's a patch for that: |    4 +++-

FWIW, Gnulib's analogous script underwent similar treatment:

(I suppose one advantage has over bootstrap is that does not silently fail.  Another, arguably, is that it
collects so-called "gnulib utility" info -- see HACKING.)
