[PATCH] gettext support for GCC 4.0 internal format, fix for PR translation/21364

(Resent with bzipped patch, wonder if it is otherwise considered spam):

Ok, I wrote the necessary gettext support for the newly intoduced format
string stuff and then run it over current po/ files.

The second attachment is the gettext patch.
contains all errors it found (well, if there is already one bug reported
for a msgid/msgstr pair, I have not included the rest of bugs), including
fuzzy strings.  Note that I have just used --language=GCC-source and
current --keyword= machinery, so it won't catch bugs where a msgid used
in varargish functions, but not using any va_arg, is translated into a
format string that needs va_arg.

The first patch is a patch against current GCC CVS (applies to both
HEAD and 4.0 branch), that fixes bugs that happen in non-fuzzy strings.
These are very serious bugs, as they usually crash the compiler, so IMHO we
should apply this immediately, then talk to teams.
Where the solution was obvious, I have fixed the format string, where
it was not obvious, I have added ", fuzzy", so that it will not be
used in *.gmo files and translators can check it out.

BTW, shouldn't we implement %n$ style arguments in addition to % ones?
It seems e.g. several turkish translations relied on this...
