[bug-gettext] [RFC Patch2] Implement \u support in xgettext for C family

This is a second try for the patch. It breaks format-c-5 test, because
it converts every string to UTF-8. The error is

xgettext: Non-ASCII string at ../tests/format-c-5-prg.c:60.
          Please specify the source encoding through --from-code.
FAIL: format-c-5

because the sixtieth line of gettext-tools/tests/format-c-5-prg.c is

  expected_result = "Vater von \xdb\xb5 Kindern";

that is not a valid ASCII string. With this patch, every string is
translated to UTF-8, so this string abort() xgettext.

Adding --from-code=UTF-8 in the test is a workaround, although I do not
have any actual idea right now about how to solve it. :(

Happy Hacking!
