The bug report above also mentions the glib one, The idea is to have
glib require ngettext, but that won't be until after GTK+ 2.4 is
released as mentioned in the report.

For now, the check needs to be in all the apps/libs. gnome-games for
example does this:

/* Define a sensible alternative to ngettext if we don't have it. Note that
 * this is only sensible in the context of same-gnome. */
#define ngettext(one,lots,n) gettext(lots)

/* ... and then ngettext is used: */

b = g_strdup_printf (ngettext ("%d stone selected", "%d stones
selected", tagged_count), tagged_count);
