Fixed upstream
and oe-core master/thud/possibly sumo also carry the relevant patch

If you're using older releases against a newer release then 1) this
is why we have supported host distros and 2) the patch is easy to
so, to confirm what i thought, this is a bug in gnulib which
suggests i should dig through the build configuration to see where i
can, say, set a PREFERRED_VERSION of a newer version of gnulib that
no longer has tat bug? or, barring that, just add the appropriate
local patch on my end.
