Strictly speaking this is not a bug report; it is an enhancement request.
The Makefile for gettext visits each subdirectory in turn, invoking make
with whatever target name (install, clean etc) that was supplied. But
some environments just want the gettext runtime and not the tools. This
is the case for embedded environments where space can be tight. It would
be useful if there was a way to invoke the top level gettext Makefile to
tell it just to build/install the runtime. I note that there is a
subdirectory, gettext-runtime whose Makefile just builds the runtime.
Maybe the top level Makefile could have a target that just processes
