I've been discussing this with a few developers and have updated the
tarball (

I've split the old gettext package into two parts, gettext-tools which
contains all the things we want for pkgsrc like msgfmt, and gettext
itself, which is just the autopoint and gettextize and related files.
The next big steps would be to change almost all uses of devel/gettext
as dependency to devel/gettext-tools and to teach the tools framework
about it. I've kept the -m4 package separate since it costs almost zero
time to build as it is now (no configure and no build) and might become
handy for packages which want to rebuild configure.

What do you think?
