It was just a guess. Since all packages were updated in 2003,
libintl and libintl1 are from 2001, and libintl2 from 2002 and
2003, I thought it you needed libintl, the latter would be the
requirement. But you're right. Here nothing returns it.
Actually, I don't do a full install, and the only things still
using libintl1 are: textutils grep findutils. Guess what ?
They're all from 2002.

And the only packages with a requirement for gettext are
mod_php4 and XFree86-base.
