The git-version-gen problem is fixed now. @jonsger, was there any other problem that you ran into?  What do you think about using https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnutls/ for guile-gnutls tarballs in the future?  Regarding using distro-gnulib, that is not safe in general since guile-gnutls is only tested against specific versions of gnulib, but if you really want to I believe ./bootstrap --gnulib-srcdir=/foo/bar should work if the distribution distributes gnulib's as it is intended (i.e. a copy of the git repo) but supporting gnulib files spread out over the file system is not a supported method.  Btw, what do you hope to achieve by running autoreconf in a tarball?  Running autoreconf is not a documented way to re-bootstrap this (or any other) project from source, and running it is likely to lead to other unwanted problems, depending on what you hope to achieve.
