It have not been fixed yet. Here is a patch that removes that flag. You
can not recreate the gcc.pot file without this patch.

The pot file in the cvs have not been uupdated in a long, long time. Maybe
it's time to do so by someone with cvs access. Remember that you MUST have
the cvs version of gettext since the last released version 0.10.35 from
august 1999 is not enough for gcc.

ps. Should I attach the patch or inline it in the letter? In this case
it's just a one line fix, so it's easy in either case, but in the future?

ps2. I still can't use the translation since gcc is broken.
