Impending update to devel/gettext

Hi folks,

I'm looking for some early adopters to try out an upgrade of devel/ 
gettext to 0.16.1 -- I've already built a few relatively large  
consumers of gettext which seem to be fine; the issues are much more  
likely to be run-time rather than compile-time, so a pointyhat -exp  
build is unlikely to be amazingly useful in terms of feedback.

The patch can be found at  
-- all the usual disclaimers apply in terms of blowing up your  
computer, setting fire to your house, eating your first-born and so on.

Ideally I'd like to commit this in about two weeks or so.  Please  
send any comments directly to me at ade at
