The macros from gettext.m4 use 'gt_' as a prefix for their variables. Sadly,
'gt' isn't that uncommon for a namespace. While porting GNOME Terminal from
intltool to gettext, its own configure.ac gt_api_version variable [0] clashed
with gettext.m4 gt_api_version [1] and broke AM_GNU_GETTEXT...

As a workaround, GNOME Terminal changed its prefix [1] but it would be nice
for gettext use a stronger namespace like eg. 'gettext_'.
