I think this explanation should go in the commit message of the second patch,
as it makes clear why such patch is needed.

Is the issue still present with the latest gettext version (1.18.2)?  If not,
you could update the '$tarballs' definition to point to that instead.

Also, I see that the Automake version referenced by '$tarballs' is still
1.12.3; I think it should be updated to the latest available version
(1.13.2 at the moment of writing).
