Yes.  --import will put:

  dnl you must add AM_GNU_GETTEXT([external]) or similar to configure.ac.

in gnulib.m4.  It won't call gettext directly.  That is arguable a
bug, but fixing this properly (so it doesn't cause problems in your
situation) will require some work.

Perhaps gettext.h could be separated from the other gettext macros, if
this would be useful for you.  I'm not sure I understand exactly what
you want to achieve, though.
