I don't think that most people install it by hand... most people get it
from their distributions I would think...

I just had a look at

http://packages.ubuntu.com/oneiric/devel/   11.10
http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/devel/     11.04
http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/devel/  10.10

and they all list gettext 0.18.1? I would think all distributions newer
than the 21 month since the release of the latest gettext would ship
with it..
