These two package-sets should be updated together.
(*) new library package -- gettext-devel now depends on it. Because we
do not have versioned requires AFAIK, this means that even people who are
using the curr: gettext-devel will pick up the test: libgettextpo0
package as a dependency. However, this should be harmless.
Both libiconv and gettext packages were COMPLETELY reorganized between
(libiconv: 1.8 -> 1.9.1, gettext: 0.11.5 -> 0.12.1). So much so, that I
would consider these packages to be new ports. Worse, they needed lots
of care and feeding, plus new (cygwin-specific) code [thanks a bunch,
Bruno...] Even after I got all the code "just right", I still needed to
compile libiconv (yes, again!)
compile gettext (yes, again!)
compile libiconv AGAIN!
compile libiconv ONE MORE TIME!
compile gettext A FINAL TIME...
My poor 450Mhz laptop was really tired...
In any case, these "new ports" passed their internal selftests for the
most part (better compliance than their predecessors) so they're probably
okay. Here's hoping...
