Follow-up Comment #9, bug #56109 (project gettext):

As long as it was not new releases in last few years anyone who will be trying
trying to build gettext package will not be even able to follow those

I don't remember in +10 years any project needlessly puffed by gnulib.
Occasionally like in this case with pow() it breaks only other projects.

4th time .. PLEASE ..
Could you please tell do you have any plans to push out all already
accumulated changes in git repo as new release?
Do I need to beg you to answer on very simple question?

PS. I just found that by default on linux gettext builds and installs
libasprintf which is nowhere else used (even not in gettext). It would be good
to at least disable build it.

Other thing is building and installing every piece of the gettext
documentation in html form.

address@hidden gettext-]$ ./configure --help | grep html
  --htmldir=DIR           html documentation [DOCDIR]

As you see current ac build suite does not offer to disable build and install
this stuff.
almost 100% all those files duplicates already installed documentation in form
of roff and info pages.
