Is this actually needed ? All of glibc, musl and uclibc provide
libintl.h, and a dummy implementation of libintl functions.

We only need the full-blown gettext on the target to provide libintl
with real functionality when NLS=y and uclibc/musl is used.

But other than that, when !NLS, the stub implementation in musl/uclibc
is fine, no ?
