	The devel/gettext package builds and installs the gettext.jar file
	when a java compiler is detected during the configure stage.  As seen
	in the PLIST, the file is not registered (so here is the problem).
	Looking at the Makefile, one can see that it has several lines that
	attempt to disable the java detection, but they seem not to work.
	Install lang/sun-jdk13 (or any other java sdk, I guess) and then
	build and install devel/gettext.
	Avoid detection of the java compiler, even if installed.  Sorry,
	haven't found a clean way to do this yet...

	And the solution shouldn't be to register the .jar file.  For it,
	we could create later a gettext-jar package or something...
