Would it be asking too much for you to clearly document the reason for this
somewhere where it would be found by someone looking to install the package?
I didn't see it in any README file and no Info node refers to installing
the gettext package itself.  In fact, the Info files all assume the setup
which is *not* the default that installing gettext creates.
