Yes, but considering that GNU gettext and Solaris gettext have different
semantics in some areas, I don't see what else can be done. If you use
Solaris gettext with translations intended for GNU gettext, your program
could crash or not display some messages. So refusing to link with the
implementation that has different semantics seems sensible to me.

The license problem is interesting. It's currently preventing me from
publishing my binary packages, because I don't know if all those LGPL
libraries linked against GPL gettext library have to be distributed under
GPL or not.
