Thanks for your explanation.
I understand the benefit of g-prefix.

But this does not have any effects for x11/gtk3's xgettext case.
g-prefix does not solve my issue, because my issue is how to select
correct xgettext path. If the path contains g-prefix, some additional
confusions may be solved, however my problem will not disappear.

My understanding is wrong?

Thank you.
