I disagree with the FSF on their rationale here. Our working procedure has
been that header files should be self-contained. By adding in the <config.h>
at the top, we would mask header files that really have a dependency on things
defined in config.h.

Newer versions of Solaris supports ngettext as well. However, older versions
don't as they precede GNU gettext's introduction of ngettext (circa 2001,
AFAICT). So, it's a question of how far back we should support.

At this moment, I don't see a reason why we need to handle plurals. If we
find out later that we really ought to do plurals, we can adjust our targets
accordingly. *shrug* -- justin
