There are some packages, e.g. comms/lrzsz, that try to force using catgets()
instead of using gettext().  Is this portable across NetBSD/Linux/Solaris?
If it is, then why do we use gettext?  If it's not, then should we change
packages that use catgets to use gettext instead (this is usually just
removing --with-catgets from CONFIGURE_ARGS)?
