I would actually like to put this in CVS in a series of 
smaller steps, rather than with a monster patch.

So far I have added basic gettext files as provided by
gettextize, and added common/fcintl.h

What I would like to see now is a patch which changes 
configure etc, and civserver.c and civclient.c, to provide
basic working support.  

I would prefer changes which mark strings and provide 
translations to be later, or at least separately.  
(Well, if you like you may mark _one_ string and provide 
_one_ translation for testing purposes ;-)

Note that to do configure work on freeciv one should be
using automake-1.4 and autoconf-2.13.

And a question: is it possible to tell gettext where the 
translations (.gmo files) are without doing "make install"?  
Eg, to just run freeciv from the untar-ed and compiled 
distribution directory with translations in ./po ?
