NetBSD-current includes gettext-lib 0.10.x,, and pkgsrc has 0.11.x.
Here's what I found:
GNU gettext 0.10.x expects the '\' character to be escaped as \\
GNU gettext 0.11.x expects the '\' character to be not escaped, just \
SunOS 5.8 msgfmt expects the '\' character to be not escaped, just \
I suspect that in this situation, the SunOS and pkgsrc gettext are correct,
and the NetBSD gettext is buggy.
