Question on older version of gettext

Dear listmembers,
currently I am attempting to make an old package (namely xcdroast) build and 
compile with zero warnings.
Now, this package is using gettext 0.11.5 what causes 2 warnings to pop up 
(they're harmless, but I'd like to know how to get rid of them):

config.status: WARNING:  po/ seems to ignore the --datarootdir 
config.status: WARNING:  intl/ seems to ignore the --datarootdir 

This is caused by the fact that the package is based on gettext 0.11.5. When I 
call "autoreconf" the and - versions of the 
corresponding release get copied into the directories po and intl. At that 
time the transistion to "datarootdir" hadn't taken place, so the reference is 
missing. However, since those files get extracted during configuration, I 
cannot patch them to contain the line

datarootdir = @datarootdir@

what would fix the warning. Well, I could patch them but it is very unusual to 
patch files _after_ the autoreconf process and before calling configure ....

Just for curiousity reasons and for to learn something: is there any way to 
get rid of this warning without upgrading to a more recent gettext version?

Thank you very much for looking into this,
take care
