I read gettext tutorial attentive and ask different people from our translation teams 
And they say that catgets has problem with diffrents locales for example for RUSSIAN
ru_RU.CP1251, ru_RU.UTF-8, ru_RU.KOI8-R

Next problem is when try to ganerate directory with russian and  LC_CTYPE=POSIX the gencat notwork
We must all time correct the Makefile for LC_CTYPE= On my mind it's not good for portability.

And now gettext lib redistribuite under LGPL lisens It's conflict with OpenLDAP Lisens or not ???
