The gnulib manual recomend against that so I didn't consider it:

   Avoiding to use `gettextize' (manually, as package maintainer) or
   `autopoint' (as part of a script like `autoreconf' or `autogen.sh')
   is not the solution: These programs also import the infrastructure in
   the `po/' and optionally in the `intl/' directory.

Trying it, autoreconf (automake) complains about missing ABOUT-NLS:

configure.ac:55: required file `./ABOUT-NLS' not found

I don't see that file in gnulib.  So it doesn't seem to work.
