I think I figured it out, and that we reached an acceptable compromise:
if you _want_ the latest and greatest gettext support, use the 'gettext'
module, and get Makefile.in.in from gnulib; if you want stable gettext
support (and don't mind GNU Coding Standard compliance), use the
'gettext-h' module and get Makefile.in.in from autopoint instead.


Meanwhile, no one ever reviewed my proposed doc patch:
