The file format doesn't change. Cherry picking gettext is asked for
trouble, just as cherry picking iconv is often difficult to dangerous.
I don't think there's any proper reason to require linking with another
gettext version and at least the gettext in NetBSD 4 will be good enough
for this I think.
