GNU.Gettext.dll in /usr/lib?

While trying to add C# support to the Debian gettext package,
I reached the point where I have prototype packages compiled for 10
different architectures (the normal 11 but m68k, which does not have
pnet yet).

The gettext manual says .dll and .exe files are architecture-independent,
which confirms what I suspected by looking at the lengths of these files
in the different architectures (they do not change).

So: Is there something that would break horribly if GNU.Gettext.dll
were put somewhere in /usr/share, like libintl.jar, or there is a
hardcoded path somewhere which forces it to be in /usr/lib?

[ Same thing for msgfmt.net.exe and msgunfmt.net.exe ].

While we are at it: The strip utility seems to understand the format
of .exe and .dll files, since it does not complain when trying
to strip them. It is really safe to strip them?
