most solaris platforms traditionally have *at least* native gettext, msgfmt, and xgettext
in /usr/gnu/bin and g-prefixed binaries in /usr/bin.

The problem to be fixed is when pkgsrc gettext-tools should be used, but
with the g-prefix, GNU configure can pick up native for those *and then*
pkgsrc gettext for the rest.

For a example, take a look at databases/gnome-mime-data wrt gmsgfmt.
