Hmm ... so there code that this patch adds to include/gettext.h already exists
in include/config.h.in, but ENABLE_GETTEXT isn't being defined anywhere. So
this part of your patch still seems to be needed, in both the attr and acl
When I add it, I get this far:
$ make aclocal.m4
configure:3493: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_LIBTOOL
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
It turns out that aclocal.m4 is created with only the macros in the m4/
directory, and AC_PROG_LIBTOOL is not among them; this can be checked with:
$ aclocal --acdir=m4 --verbose
This would usually be fixed by including the macros in m4/ in addition, but
then I run into the next problem:
$ aclocal -I m4
configure: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub
As per one of the libtool info pages,

after adding config.guess, config.sub from automake, and ltmain.sh from
libtool (we already have our own install-sh), the package builds again.
I'm attaching a diff relative to the current repo excluding config.guess,
config.sub, and ltmain.sh which should be on your systems from automake and
This is quite insane. Is there a more reasonable way?
