Can you elaborate a bit?

With 'patch', do you mean the proposal of adding --disable-nls as I sent in
my first mail ? Come to think of it, does that even make sense? Isn't that
flag normally provided by gettext itself?

Regardless, how will upstreaming that patch remove the dependency on
gettext? Who will provide a definition for AM_GNU_GETTEXT?

(I think I now understand part of the confusion: libuio comes from git,
there are no packaged tarballs with a preboiled configure script. Hence,
autoreconf is always necessary.)
