apparently it gets hard when you dont update it frequently.

here's the relevant extract of the discussion

Apr 19 17:43:04 <brobecke>      wow, that gnulib thing is a lot more 
effort than I thought. Gotta send big thanks to palves for doing it.
Apr 19 17:44:17 <tromey>        one reason we should maybe update gnulib 
more frequently is that if we wait too long, it is harder to do
Apr 19 17:44:36 <palves>        I had no idea when I started either :-P

Apr 19 22:45:35 <palves>        yay, gnulib patch in, I can finally
