I guess libintl could be built with uClibc, before adjusting. Then Gettext can 
remain where it is. The only question is if 29-gettext.txt should reinstall 
libintl, by default it won't. If libintl were part of uClibc it would be 
built in chapter 6 with the gcc in /tools, so I don't see why it should be 
reinstalled after. Its only a matter of passing "--with-included-gettext" 
when building Gettext.

I think adding gettext-0.14.1/gettext-runtime/ to both uclibc.txt would be 
good. And a note in chapter06/29-gettext.txt that if you reinstall/upgrade 
gettext to use "--with-included-gettext" so that libintl will be rebuilt too.
