I modified that so that it uses the values that the chunk of autoconf
script which comes with gettext uses - that's done in src/

Henry's change to ./ has no effect since the parameter
is not carried down to src - and it's not really good to do that with
makefile assignments since there's so many things it could be done
for & will rapidly become unusable.
