10.2 Gettext

If AM_GNU_GETTEXT is seen in ‘configure.ac’, then Automake turns on support for GNU gettext, a message catalog system for internationalization (see Introduction in GNU gettext utilities).

The gettext support in Automake requires the addition of one or two subdirectories to the package: ‘po’ and possibly also ‘intl’. The latter is needed if AM_GNU_GETTEXT is not invoked with the ‘external’ argument, or if AM_GNU_GETTEXT_INTL_SUBDIR is used. Automake ensures that these directories exist and are mentioned in SUBDIRS.
