What I ended up doing is importing parts of gnulib, but customizing the
imports to avoid explosions of secondary-effect modules being pulled in
and not needing a lot of extra machinery in the Makefiles.

I created a separate branch gnulib-port which contains unmodified
versions of gnulib modules, then merged them in and modified them. 
This should allow us to make use of git's merge facilities to import
newer gnulib versions more easily.

So far so good.
