FWIW, my work-in-progress is : doesn't [yet] add any other frequently used
gettext tools but now does the alias for pkgsrc g-prefix tools.

gettext-tools.diff has some test specific things (gt_cv_locale_fr and asprintf)
and uses pkgsrc libxml2 instead of the included one, but now does the PKGGNUDIR thing.

Hopefully there is interest in something along these lines after the
quarterly drop.
