This patch merges the latest release of gettext into the intl

changes which enable building with bison 3.0, but the majority
of the other changes are merely cosmetic so it seemed like merging
the whole directory was simpler than trying to take it piecemeal.

This appears to break setups like RHEL 6 where we still use bison 2.4.1:

/usr/bin/bison --yacc --name-prefix=__gettext --output plural.c plural.y
plural.y:46.18-21: syntax error, unexpected identifier

We don't seem to document or test for any particular version of bison,
though I
see the shipped plural.c file is still from bison 2.7.

It would be nice if this actually continued to work with the older bison.
I just changed that line to "%define api.pure", which works, with some
but honestly I have no idea what I'm doing. :-)  Equivalently I can just
the shipped plural.c to avoid running bison; again we do get -Wundef's,
Ugh, I only tested with 2.7 and 3.0. Which Wundefs happen if you touch plural.c?

Sorry, I must have mixed up my cases while testing.  Now I see that
2.7 looks like it doesn't generate warnings, which is good.

The 2.4.1-generated build yields:

plural.c:323:6: warning: "YYENABLE_NLS" is not defined [-Wundef]
plural.c:737:6: warning: "YYLTYPE_IS_TRIVIAL" is not defined [-Wundef]

I don't know if the right answer is to just document that 2.7 is the
minimum (and folks with older bison and no desire to edit plural.y can
just make sure to touch plural.c before building), or if there's some
reasonable way we can fix or workaround the warnings from 2.4.1.
