You forget to notice one thing, these are debian specific.  The gettext.sh
script, however, is meant to be used by just ". gettext.sh" by random
third party programs that can be expected to run on FreeBSD as well as
on Mandrake and Debian.  So without a modification to shell's behaviour
of "." (i.e. a DOTPATH variable and default or something) I guess that
I have to agree to Santiago and Bruno - even though I don't like it
and don't consider it FHS or Debian policy compliant, but compatibility
with other Unices seem to dictate this.
