Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 0/4] maint: improve bootstrap

If you commit the gnulib sync first, then this is an appropriate commit
log for 3/4:

maint: import modern bootstrap

Copy the latest gnulib bootstrap, which runs autoreconf and
generates po/Makevars for us.  Other improvements include some
improved prerequisite tool checking.

This also fixes a bug in the .pot files, regarding the copyright holder.

* bootstrap: Update to version in .gnulib/build-aux.
(gnulib_mk, ACLOCAL, bootstrap_epilogue): Provide overrides.
* autogen.sh (autoreconf): Avoid redundant autoreconf if bootstrap
was run.
* po/Makevars: Delete, now that bootstrap creates it.
* po/.gitignore: Update.

If you commit my changes first, then

* bootstrap: Update to version in .gnulib/build-aux.

should change to:

* bootstrap: Update to latest version from upstream gnulib.

Coming later today, after I've had lunch.

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
