Taking that as a hint not to go charging off onto bug-gnulib@, and looking
at the bug-gnulib archive, Bruno Haible says in
http://www.mail-archive.com/bug-gnulib gnu org/msg20323.html:

"The header is updated automatically when you import the file into your
project, assuming you invoke gnulib-tool with the option --lgpl or
--lgpl=2."

Is this a solution Hivex can use?
