That might be a case of „you caused the issue, you deal with it“. I
take it you _could_ install libintl from gettext and abandon the NetBSD
implementation, at least from the viewpoint of GNU folks;-)

Of course, more elaborate faking of gettext, including defining that
macro after checking that the implementation is really
feature-compatible with said version, is another solution. I guess VLC
upstream would also not be too happy to cooperate if it turns out that
the non-gettext libintl is causing some issue.

Well, I'm back to trying to handle differing implemenations of BLAS
stuff. Not going into differing implementations of libintl on top …

Alrighty then,
