I worked around it while packaging sed for Cygwin by doing:

so maybe that argues that the bootstrap process should tweak
po/Makefile.in.in and/or makevars in such a manner.  I don't know if it
is a weakness of gettext in general that it's makefiles do not play
nicely with all of the usual supported targets.

Maybe one of the gettext developers has an idea, since it is the
generated po/Makefile that needs the tweak?  Adding them in cc.
