It might be worth fixing this.  Even better would be if we got around to
implementing Bruno's proposal to move gettext's configury stuff to
Automake (as documented and tested in the pot-primary git branch).
That could fix this, and at the same time make several other issues go

If somebody wants to beat me on this, I'd be delighted.

Thanks for the bug report,
