This looks like the same issue as:

However, that one was fixed.

Can you reproduce this problem outside of the gentoo ebuild system?
Does gentoo run gettextize/autoconf/automake/libtoolize or replace any
m4 files from the upstream version, or something similar?

The important thing, I think, is to not run autopoint with any version
older than 0.17.  Then you'll get the incorrect lib-*.m4 files.

I think the best way to resolve this problem is to give a recipe to
reproduce the problem outside of the gentoo build system.  Then I can
debug it and possibly report any bugs to upstream tools (gettext,
libtool, etc).
