Sorry, my misunderstanding then.

I honestly don't know.  All I can tell is that my Gettext 0.11.5
macros are aclocal-visible here.  What --prefix did you give?  What
does make -n install give in gettext/m4?

| Works great, thanks Akim.

Thanks for testing :)

Aaah!  Thanks for explaining, I didn't know what it was.

Could someone install the patch please?
