gettextize — replaced!

As discussed here previously, gettextize is a particularly sociopathic piece of software that causes unncessary confusion when building any software that it touches.

Well, in libguestfs we finally got rid of it.

The replacement, a simple Makefile.am, is 110 lines long, which is considerably smaller than the maze of m4 macros and shell scripts that it replaced. It also runs much faster because make can compile the PO files in parallel.
