I commented out the USE_BUILTIN.gettext=no and I am using 
PREFER_NATIVE+=gettext iconv

Building gettext-tools fails when building .libs/msginit with:

msginit-msginit.o(.text+0x23d): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `_nl_locale_name'

that is from the part of patch-ah I should have kept.

Anyways, any thoughts on allowing the following?

msginit_DEPENDENCIES =  \

I have not tried on other systems yet.
