don't directly depend on the gettext module in gnulib, but doubtless
it's being pulled in as a dependency of something.

There's no gettext 0.18 in Fedora, even in Rawhide, and it seems
non-trivial to build.  My workaround has been to manually replace
gettext.m4 and po.m4 with the ones from gettext 0.17.

It'd be good if gnulib didn't replace gettext, or if gettext was not
insane and just worked like a regular library.

There aren't many modules that depend on gettext

$ grep -x gettext *

acl seems to me like it would also work with gettext-h (tests pass at least). Bruno, can you confirm?

Requiring gettext in quotearg-tests looks a bit heavyweight though...
