I didn't realize that I had got it wrong.  Since the problem was the cset
that only partially updated gnulib, I just removed it.

summary:     Backed out changeset 0dad96574d12 causing problems with Texinfo.

I also tried Mike's suggestion of cloning gnulib directly and running
bootstrap with --gnulib-srcdir and this worked too.

I don't know enough about this so I'll let someone else make the decision.
