There are also the helper programs, the info docs, and po-mode for emacs.

It shouldn't be necessary to install all that extra stuff just to have l10n in a shell script.

My proposal is to move the gettext binary to the libc6 package (or some
othe essential package) and leave the gettext package for developers.

That might not be a bad idea, I should ask Ulrich if it'd make sense to add the `gettext' program to glibc.
