Older glibc systems have bugs. I need consistent behavior on all systems.

If GetText needs libunistring, it's not really optional.

Yes, I do that already.

Thanks again for --with-included-gettext. I yanked it and things seem OK.

After thinking about it, I believe I used --with-included-gettext to
indicate I wanted the version of GetText from the tarball I
downloaded, and not the system one. I had no idea it really meant
something to do with glibc. Maybe that option should be
-with-glibc-gettext to avoid confusion.
