gettext in the contribs was upgraded recently from 0.14.6 to 0.16

Yo'll need to set PATH=/usr/win32/bin:$PATH before running configure,
gettext tools are detected by launching it:
+ gettextize --version
++ gettextize --version

I've never seen that oO hopes running good gettext fixes it

(Don't forget linking with libintl 0.16 is broken under windows, if
you need a working copy of vlc, edit line 43 of
extras/contrib/src/packages.mak to use 0.14.6)
