In retrospect, I think http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1074926/ is better.

In fact, my analysis of Fabrice's patch was wrong. Even if the
gettext-tiny issue gets resolved, vdr-plugin-vnsiserver (apparently)
still needs msgfmt/msgmerge unconditionally, so we would indeed need a
host-gettext dependency.

But Fabrice's patch makes that not necessary, by only installing the
i18n files when BR2_SYSTEM_ENABLE_NLS=y.
