gnu/ isn't the right place - build infrastructure exists in
src/gnu/lib, but the GPL/LGPL source itself lives in contrib/diff and
contrib/dialog. Those two are the only remaining GPL/LGPL userland
components, and both are on the way out. I suspect the right place for
the proposed library's build infrastructure is beside the tests that
will use it.
