[bug-gnulib] gettextize & mkinstalldirs

When I ran gettextize to update the hello sources to gettext 0.14.5, it
added build-aux/mkinstalldirs to the top-level EXTRA_DIST.  

mkinstalldirs was not an included file in the gnulib gettext module
(I'd previously run gnulib-tool --import).  So it seems either it
should be added in gnulib, or removed from gettextize.  My understanding
is that install[-sh] -d is preferred these days, although the generated
po/Makefile apparently uses it.

Also, mkinstalldirs was already included in DIST_COMMON by Automake, so
gettext didn't need to add it on that score, either.

BTW, it would be helpful for me, at least, if gettextize could acquire
an option reporting what actually changes.  (My net connection is slow
and it's a drag to run cvs on the whole hierarchy every time.)

gettextize -n, with no -f, just reports that po/Makefile.in.in exists,
so that's not helpful in my case.  gettextize -n -f apparently actually
changes files, ie, the -f overrides the -n.  Yikes.  Anyway, it reports
that every file is updated.
