Hello again, Bertrand.  I'm back in the saddle.  Let me iterate my
thanks to you for grappling submodule and build system issues.

I'll note in case anyone had a problem with an 'M' descriptor showing up
next to the gnulib directory on "git status" output--I had to do a
  $ git submodule update
to resync with the update to the new gnulib tag.

After that things worked fine.

Please try the attached patch.  It doesn't regress on my system, and if
it clears the problems on yours it should be good for a commit (if I add
a ChangeLog message).
