I know that the gettext code itself is identical.  Please pardon me for
being unclear.  I was referring to the translations: the vast majority of
messages issued by gcc2 and egcs are exactly the same.  I don't see why
two separate efforts are needed, one to put the gcc2 messages in, say French
and one to put the egcs messages in French.
