The reason the current code doesn't check the version is that we were hoping
the patch might work for multiple versions of gettext. We don't want to
assume the patch won't work just because the gettext version number changed.

But I agree that comments to say which gettext versions the checks are
for would be an improvement, and we want a patch for gettext 0.11. Also,
we should have much better error messages for when the patch fails.

I put this bug report into bugzilla as bug 72854.
