Please test this again when I upload 2.2.2 (hopefully, on Monday or
Tuesday) and file a bug if it's broke.

Hmm... maybe filing a perl bug is called for.  Not sure.

I'm pretty sure that a bug is filed already about this -- can you
confirm that?  Make it severity Important.

Interesting -- feel like tracking this down and filing a bug?

Woah.  Um... do you mean emacs-common?  gettext was removed from base

Dunno.  The package should depend on it anyway.  Please file a bug.
