Why do you need gettext included?

I've found that in practice it's much easier to use
AM_GNU_GETTEXT([external]).  People who don't have libintl.h builtin
typically don't care whether you support translations.  On the
contrary, it's enough of an extra porting hassle that they'll probably
thank you if you switch to AM_GNU_GETTEXT([external]).
