This is a longstanding bug in gettext --- unless the destination tree for the
gettextize files already exists at configure time, it installs "flat" and
gettextize copies the flattened files.

You need to remove gettext, then rebuild and reinstall it, making sure
that you have precreated the directories in /usr/share/gettext (po and intl)
*before* running configure so it doesn't screw up the install rules.
