To be precise, it calls the configured executables; you can
install Gettext in your home directory or in the home directory
of your neighbor. this is what I like about (GNU Standards-compliant)
installation from the source code.

The dependencies are (incompletely) listed in;
besides Gettext, one would need at least GNU make which also
may not be installed.

On the other hand, translators needn't have anything of this
on their machines, those jobs may run on team's server, so
people just pull the files from the VCS (or download from cgit)
after processing.

...for GNU/Hurd.

I must confess I have zero experience with making binary packages.
to the best of my knowledge, if I were to package it (for some
distro), I'd still refer to its further dependencies like Bash
or awk.

Doesn't this work?
