gettext is not wholly GPL. The file gettext-runtime/COPYING from
gettext 0.16.1 says:
The gettext-runtime package is partially under the LGPL and
partially under the GPL.
The following parts are under the LGPL, see files
intl/COPYING.LIB-2.0 and intl/COPYING.LIB-2.1:
- the libintl and libasprintf libraries and their header files,
- the libintl.jar Java library,
- the GNU.Gettext.dll C# library,
- the gettext.sh shells script function library.
The following parts are under the GPL, see file COPYING in the
- the _programs_ gettext, ngettext, envsubst,
- the documentation.
In gettext 0.14.5, the file was even shorter:
The gettext-runtime package is under the LGPL, see files
intl/COPYING.LIB-2.0 and intl/COPYING.LIB-2.1.
So the gettext runtime library "libintl", which is what matters at
runtime for applications, is definitely LGPL.
