You can see this bug:


I confess I didn't get a satisfactory answer to my question, of why the
minimum version in configure.ac must be changed.  It seems to me that if
I build the make distribution tarball with a newer version of gettext,
regardless of the minimum version specified in configure.ac, it should
be good enough.

However, Brad was clear that he believed that the minimum version MUST
be increased in configure.ac in order to get the benefits.  I was going
to build with the new version anyway so I just changed it.

If this is a problem we can get back into it and ask Brad for more
clarification, and maybe check on the OpenBSD lists for details.
