packages that BuildRequire: gettext that need to change to gettext-devel

The whole contents of the gettext package are pretty much for
developers-and-translators-only, so it doesn't seem like creating a
'gettext-devel' will win us much compared to the amount of work required.
Adding a 'cvs' dependency to 'gettext' will upset a few people, but it's
really not that bad a thing.
It looks like the main need for gettext outside of
developers-and-translators may be using /bin/gettext from shell scripts -
moving that file into a 'gettext-utils' subpackage might be an easier and
less intrusive solution.
I looked at autopoint, and it should be reasonably easy to get rid of its
use of CVS by doing a checkout from archive.tar.gz at package build time
rather than runtime. Is autopoint even used at all?
Some random ideas,
The daring is in the doing
