Hi all,

Looks like we actually fixed the problem with the same patch already in the past (for VLC 2.2 or earlier), see commit d879f020aee800abaafae2e333be6da6604a3577 in vlc.git.

Currently I do not see any other way than doing it again for vlc.git like this.

As discussed, we should be aware that it would get overwritten again once someone updates the m4 macros to a newer gettext version.
So the only proper way to fix it seems to try to upstream that patch to the official gettext.

BR. David
