Hi Sergey,

Many thanks for the review. I am happy to drop these like stones with
the next release. :D

This one makes me wonder. I am seeing, for whatever reason, a build
failure due to (presumably) the tarball being created with gettext 0.19
(as po/Makefile.in.in says) and configure.ac referencing 0.18. I can't
understand too well where the incompatibility lies, but it seems I'm
not the only one.

The error message is:

*** error: gettext infrastructure mismatch: using a Makefile.in.in from
gettext version 0.18 but the autoconf macros are from gettext version

I'll have a look at the current situation. I clearly remember texinfo
not being happy at all.

Thanks for including the rest of the patches. Will make my life easier
when updating to newer releases.
