I think this binary has been overlooked during the years Neil has been
working on Emdebian (yes, we know that you work on that, no need to
repeat it over and over and over and over and over and over again).
Otherwise he would have opened a bug against gettext, which could have
been better than pestering about the minor #468209 wishlist bug. Of
course, YMMV.
