I haven't had a chance to try the SBo version of gnulib with the latest fontforge. I just noticed that the new release of fontforge pulls in a git snapshot if its bootstrap script doesn't find it. The 2015 fontforge doesn't use gnulib. Better to let David figure that out since I do need to worry about my own 35 or so scripts. -Ed
