gettext is the GNU package which provides 'national language support'
for other programs. It includes a number of utility programs.

Important behavioral update.

[[ compiled using gcc-4.5.3-2 and g++-4.5.3-2 ]]

Changes since gettext-0.18.1.1-1
========================================
* Built using gcc-4.5
* No longer override cygwin default locale behavior
  - This also means that only those locales supported by cygwin
    may be used.  In the past, libintl interpreted LC_* strings
    more generously, and translated (e.g.) "fr" to "fr_FR". Now,
    you must use the full language_country form (.charset and @variant
    are still optional).  See 'locale -a' for the full list of
    cygwin-supported locales.
* Incorporated patch from upstream gnulib to improve efficiency of
  libintl_relocate() for the --disable-relocation case.
