That's the right fix, I agree.

The problem arose because while the gettext() function has a 'char *'
return type (although the returned string may be in read-only storage
and must not be freed!), in the !ENABLE_NLS case gettext.h uses

  # define gettext(Msgid) ((const char *) (Msgid))

This causes a warning, that is desirable in general but must be masked out
in this case.
