That's indeed a problem...
If it's something someone working from the .tar.gz with minimal build
dependencies should not need to rebuilt (assuming no files are changed),
then it is rather a task for maintainer-clean (i.e.  MAINTAINERCLEANFILES).
And that looks like a good solution!
Adding it to CLEANFILES is questionable: The idea is to have a
convenient way to force recreation of that file if
adding/removing/updating translations. May I ask for alternative ideas?
Well, the dependencies of that file already force recreation if anything
in the nls directory changes (which is already quite a almost too easy
triggering condition).
Well, the nls directory is intended only for translations. In regular use, if you change any translation, then gv_i18n.h has to be recreated, no doubt. Modifying source files (resp. directories) always increased requirents, e. g. changing configure.ac makes tutoconf/automake being required. Perhaps you can create more strict dependencies, but the positive effect is quite limited.
