I'm not sure I understand the question.

You can, on a glibc system, install e.g. uClibc in a different location,
or vice versa. For gettext, what matters is whether the executables
produced by the compiler that you indicate via $CC link to glibc or link
to uClibc. The gettext.m4 autoconf macros will detect whether executables
can directly use the *gettext() family of functions; if not, they will
arrange to build and install libintl.
