I didn't mean to suggest anything WRT this point; whether people not
using gettext have autopoint invoked makes no difference to me: if it
will cause problems by all means, let's not do it.

I wonder what way my installation is not typical, then?  I installed
autoconf 2.54, automake 1.7, and gettext 0.11.5 all with the same
--prefix value, and I had this problem.  What else should I have done?

Works great, thanks Akim.

Yes, I find that behavior of Emacs VC mode annoying as well.  If it
thinks the file is CVS-controlled it won't keep simple backups :(.
