for this pass, I included it - I'd rather make it an add-on package, but
that'll take more work.

I spent the past couple of mornings finding that the Solaris version of
xgettext doesn't handle the files Lynx has: too many files, and the
Solaris versions don't parse the continued lines.  And the workarounds
don't work.  So I don't see how to build it without the GNU gettext stuff.
(And building _that_, I found one syntax error ;-).
