Hello Eric and all,

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.

Thanks for the fix.

I think 'po/Makefile.in.in' is not a checked-in file
(it's autogenerated during the bootstrapping process),
so this patch is good for the tarballs, but not for the git

I do see that projects the use gnulib with non-recursive makefiles
include gnulib's 'non-recursive-gnulib-prefix-hack' module
and contain this in 'bootstrap.conf':

   bootstrap_post_import_hook ()
       # Massage lib/gnulib.mk before using it later in the bootstrapping 
       build-aux/prefix-gnulib-mk --lib-name=$gnulib_name lib/$gnulib_mk

So perhaps that would be a good place to
patch Makefile.in.in as you suggested ?
