Perhaps this is overkill, but how about the attached followup patch for that

a variant of Bruno's suggestion that the file should always exist.

Pretty sure we're not quite ready for a release, but there
have been enough changes that it's worth another snapshot.

Here's the most recent NEWS addition:

   Commands implemented via shell scripts are now more consistent about
   failure status.  For example, 'gunzip --help >/dev/full' now
   consistently exits with status 1 (error), instead of with status 2
   (warning) on some platforms.  [bug present since the beginning]
