I found some troubles when configuring GNATS:

$ patch -E -p1 < config-man-cleanup.diff
$ patch < gnats-wo-libiberty.diff
$ vi
... some fixups in (removing libiberty) ...
$ find . -name '*.orig' | xargs rm
$ autoconf -V | head -1
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
$ autoconf -f
$ cd doc && autoconf -f && cd ..
$ cd gnats && autoconf -f && cd ..
$ cd send-pr && autoconf -f && cd ..
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/home/mishka/gnats
....  some normal configure's stuff ....
configure: configuring in gnats
configure: running /bin/sh './configure' --prefix=/usr/home/mishka/gnats  '--prefix=/usr/home/mishka/gnats' --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
configure: error: cannot find install-sh or in . ./.. ./../..
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for gnats

This happens after moving install-sh and missing to config subdirectory.
I'm not autotools guru and just have added AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR(../config)
to configure.{ac,in} of doc, gnats, and send-pr subdirectories to solve
this problem.

Installation also broken. At we have:

	INSTALL = $(srcdir)/../install-sh -c

After configure @INSTALL_PROGRAM@ will be replaced by ${INSTALL} (at
least on my system) and thus have incorrect path.

Hey men, I forgot to include ansidecl.h into my latest patch! Just copy
it from include direcory, or use a new patch (attached):

	cp include/ansidecl.h gnats

All the rest seems works fine.
