Add lightweight alternative for the GNU gettext package - gettext-tiny.
The sources are used from sabotage-linux project. Some files are used
from the original gettext gnu like po/*, gettextize and some m4 files.

The original gettext package is renamed to gettext-gnu because now gettext is
a virtual package and gettext-gnu and gettext-tiny became as gettext providers.

The main purpose of gettext-tiny is to be used only for the host if NLS
is not enabled.

There was issue with using gettext-tiny for "wine" because it requires
libgettextpo for wrc tool to be able translate Windows's resource files
to *.pot, but this option might be disabled if NLS is disabled (done in
patch 0001.

    1) Add patch to disable gettext option for "wine" if NLS is disabled.

    2) Fix build issue with libuio by adding config.rpath by separate package


    3) Use gettext-tiny only as for HOST alternative and if NLS is disabled.
       There is no option to manually select gettext-gnu or gettext-tiny which
       is controlled by gettext virtual package.

    4) Drop "files" folder with copied files from original gettext gnu, but
       download them from:


       Thanks to Yann E. Morin for help with this.

    5) gettextize is preprocessed from the original gettextize.in

    6) Use only host-generic-package for gettext-tiny, hence remove "target"
       related stuff.

  package/wine: Add gettext dependency for host-wine only with NLS
  package/gettext: Turn into virtual package
  package/gettext-tiny: Add new package
