[patch] fix gettext.m4 breakage for standalone libintl

- system has gettext & co in libc
- standalone libintl also installed
- <libintl.h> comes from libintl, not libc

- libintl.h defines gettext & co with a prefix to avoid
  link issues with the symbols in libc
  => gettext.m4 detects this properly by looking for
     bindtextdomain in -lintl, BUT does not do anything
     with this information other than flagging the
     available gettext as GNU.
  => none of the executable link (due to missing references
     to libintl_gettext() etc.)

- update gettext.m4 to modern libintl configury
- or, failing that, adjust gettext.m4 as shown below to ensure
  INTLLIBS gets set properly.  In this case there may remain
  issues on systems that have a libintl that requires iconv()
  and iconv() is only available from a standalone library
  (=> additional -liconv needed in INTLLIBS).
