we have BSD-licensed gettext in libintl, but it can only handle message
catalog file version 0. recently most of the software packages use
more recent version of GNU gettext. also, recent gettext.m4 (autoconf
template) shipped with GNU gettext tries real hard to make sure the
gettext implemenetation is GNU origin.
so i'm wondering what is the best way:
1 support catalog file version 1 by gettext in libintl.
well, it will need dedicated/motivated developers.
2 leave it as is, libintl handles old catalog files, and
if newer catalog file needs to be handled install GNU gettext
from pkgsrc. hope someday (1) will happen.
3 remove libintl, and always use gettext from pkgsrc
