[bug-gettext] the build of gettext does not have a means of just buildin

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 that subdirectory. Alternatively, maybe the configure that gets generated could have an option to just build the runtime.
