Thanks for the pointers.  I took a look at the link you provided, while it 
specifies some code could be in LGPL, few modules I found in gettext-runtime 
(e.g. closeout, fwriteerror, progname, propername, trim, xreadlink and 
xstriconv) have GPL license explicitly stated in the gnulib module description. 
 Am I missing something?

Also, the link specifies to use some gnulib modules under LGPL, we could 
compile gnulib-tool with --lgpl to replace GPL header, but seems like that's 
not being done in gettext-runtime.  Is that safe to use gettime-runtime as LGPL?
