build: replace intltool with gettext

Lubomir Rintel requested to merge lr/gettext into main

Gettext, since version 0.19, provides infrastructure equivalent to intltool (generating po/Makefile and translating .desktop files or .xml).

Also, it seems to work better in that it actually honors MSGFMT_OPTS that are determined by the configure script. That one typically ends up set to "-c", meaning "check". Without it the bugs in the .po files are easy to overlook.
