Hi Philipp,

: while testing the 2.10 branch I also tested enabling maintainer mode and of
: cause all hell broke loose because I was missing the necessary tools. I'll
: investigate that issue a bit more, as I think we don't really need all those
: special versions. At least for the NLS stuff it looks like the only thing
: that's really needed is the cygettext.m4 for aclocal, as this contains the
: definition of CY_GNU_GETTEXT.
: 
: Until that stuff's sorted out, I think it would make much sense to place a
: short readme in the top dir to tell those that dare what's needed. Here's my
: suggestion:

Well this seems like a good idea to me.  Please check it in.

Cheers
