Hmm.  0.14.5 comes with ulonglong.m4 serial 4, rather than serial 3; it was new 
enough that at least bootstrap completed (even though we are still missing the 
fix for autoconf 2.60 present in serial 5 - the worst there is that we compile 
stuff from gnulib that is technically not needed because serial 4 made the 
wrong choice, which is a better bug than not building at all).  So I'm checking 
this in as an improvement.  Expect further patches once gettext 0.15 and/or 
autoconf 2.61 are released:
