Basically the issue is that gettext could be packaged better so that
it takes up less space. The build and install does an install of all

needed for gettext at runtime. This is no concern to the average user
but it is important on embedded systems where the size taken up by the
tools is important. Is there any chance this is going to be looked at

In Slackware we have two packages, gettext and gettext-tools.

The gettext package basically cd to the gettext-runtime subdirectory and makes 
what it founds there.

See here for details:

FYI I append content list of both gettext and gettext-tools packages as shipped 
in Slackware 14.0.
(well, more exactly the packages I recently made with the ~ stock SlackBuilds 
scripts but run against gettext-018.2-rc1 source tarball)
