Some ports needed in a 'make release' have dependencies on gettext.

If either of the nobs had any real functionality, *maybe* the overly
interactive dialog would be worth it.  But this port was hassling users
over useless bits.  To tell the truth, I don't think "WITH_HTMLMAN"
actually does anything.

If this were the 'mutt-devel' port, I could understand the use of
"OPTIONS".  But if someone is really missing these bits, a gettext-<BITS>
port should be created.
