 You have to have gettext, indeed, but you don't have to have the tools!
 That's a big difference. gettext itself is a part of glibc2 and if
 you compile GIMP for libc5 it'll be autotically linked into the
 binaries, so if you don't want to compile GIMP you don't need gettext.

 Sorry if I told you something that ain't right. Would you please tell
 me WHAT of the information I gave you has been wrong to give me a change
 to correct my mind (maybe even other sosurces)?
