Thank you for explaining.  I'm not interested in applying for commit access
since I am unwilling to sign the copyright assignment papers.

Please do.

There is more of this same stuff in locale/programs/localedef.c,
in malloc/memusagestat.c, and in nss/getent.c (and also in
argp/argp-parse.c, as Arkadiusz noted) -- another thirteen
additions of "N_()".  Is that still trivial enough not to require
copyright assignment?  If so, then I'll make a patch for it.
