What I was trying to say was "if you don't want to include gettext in
the main download, perhaps splitting all the dev files into a separate
package would permit you to add gettext and the rest".

I don't much like the fact that presently users have to go hunting for
the libraries, with not even a pointer included in the sources about
where they should look to find headers matching the shipped libraries,
and what version they need.

Why _not_ distribute gettext headers, though? Sources I can understand
for size reasons, but the headers are small and fuss free, and you need
the _right_ _versions_ to build against the Pg backend.
