Almost sounds okay, except as proposed, you would be injecting another
macro into the Automake macro AM_* namespace.  Would you please consider
renaming your macro to something like GT_XGETTEXT_OPTION, so that automake
does not have to continually worry about names from its namespace being
consumed by external packages, and so that users trying to write bug
reports against the macro have a better chance of guessing which package
actually owns the macro?
