Ideally yes.

I guess you wanted to say "if a package tries anyway to produce
translation files, we need to fix it by adding a depends on
BR2_SYSTEM_ENABLE_NLS". If that's what you meant, then I believe the
answer is no.

gettext-tiny provides some dummy implementation of the gettext tools,
so we can use these if a package really wants to generate translation
files despite BR2_SYSTEM_ENABLE_NLS being disabled. However, if there's
a reasonable way to tell the package to not generate translation files,
I'd say we should prefer that.
