Right, which is why gettext-devel *should* (and on 32bit, does) depend 
on gettext.

However, I'll investigate how the linux distros package gettext & co. 
It's possible TRTD is to have libintl-devel, libasprintf-devel, 
libgettextpo-devel, etc...and (most of) gettext-devel is transferred to 
gettext-tools.  As I said, I'll investigate.
