  Packages that require autopoint can't be reconfigured by buildroot - 
I'm not sure why. The autopoint program is not one of our dependencies, 
so we can't rely on autopoint being present.

  However, now that there is a host-gettext package, we could probably 
add the possibility to add autopoint support to autoreconf.

  Just touching ABOUT-NLS and config.rpath may also work, though.
