Keith also opened a issue on the tracker:

(sorry I missed it, actually)

I still haven't had a chance to try it on Windows, but I'm confused why
'relocatable' matters here.  If I understand correctly, the 'relocate'
function merely replaces the original installation prefix with the given
installation prefix.  That way, it should work either with or without a
drive letter.

I see dcigettext.c directly uses LOCALEDIR (without 'relocate') as a
fallback catalog directory, but it shouldn't be a problem if you call
bindtextdomain properly.

So, what is the actual problem?
