Thanks for reporting that.

I'm not sure it's worth worrying about, but in case
someone thinks it is, the place to fix it is in autoconf,
so I'm forwarding your message to that list.

BTW, you should consider upgrading to the coreutils.
The textutils package has been subsumed.

  (coreutils is the union of fileutils, textutils, and sh-utils)
