Ok... fcintl is a include file that add some macros to 
make more easy the mark of translatables strings, this should
be included in all files that mark strings (c files of course)
And need of config.h to be included.

In this patch are only one string (well... really two, one
in client and one in server) marked as translatable.

Ehmmm.... i don't know... how to make this easily.... of course
you can change the definition of GNULOCALEDIR to point to other
directory, but this directory must to have a structure like this


Of course, if anybody know a better solution, please tell me....
I know only a few things about autoconf and friends, so maybe there is
a easy way to do it.
