Thanks for having reported this upstream, here. As far as I can tell, the
statement "0.21 no longer builds with Fedora Linux 36" is only true for
the ppc64le architecture; on the usual x86_64 architecture there is no

The problem that gettext 0.21 no longer builds with glibc ≥ 2.35 on ppc64le
had been reported in this thread:

Given the long silence afterwards, I had assumed that this had been solved
by the Fedora distro, by changing the glibc header files somehow. This is
apparently not the case.

Shipping a GNU gettext snapshot is not ideal, because 'autopoint' does
not work well with snapshots, only for full releases.

I have therefore made a gettext 0.21.1 release, that backports several
portability fixes from the gettext master branch. You find it, as usual,
in https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gettext/ . Please use that in the next Fedora
release (November 2022, right?).
