I didn't have a chance to look at or test your package yet.
Thanks for working on this.
Maybe we should use the package names as suggested by the gettext
developers (gettext-runtime and gettext-tools)?
My own pkgsrc has been tweaked to use the gettext packages from pkgsrc-wip
for a couple years now. My main NetBSD system is using a
gettext-lib-0.14.1 package from Oct. 2004. And my pkgsrc is patched to
never use gettext-lib on Linux (and uses glibc instead). I have been doing
that for at least a couple years now too.
If I recall correctly, the -m4 package is no longer needed (when using
the pkgsrc-wip packages).
