I'm not sure we need to proceed with this any further.  As others have
mentioned (and has been used to fix x11/gtk3 in the meantime), we can
use TOOLS_DEPENDS directly in the Makefile to override the required

If it happens that this still isn't sufficient and we can't rely on
version checks for the specific features that we need, then there are
a few ways to enforce that the pkgsrc version is pulled in, e.g.:



  TOOLS_PLATFORM.xgettext= # unset

We appear to use both types already across pkgsrc.
