From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/6.1 (Linux 2.4.20-pre10-ac1 i686; U)  [en]

Description of problem:
the gettext rpm (at least for i386, but i'd guess for others too) depends in libgcj.

While this is not a bug, with libgcj having a respectable size (25462079 according to rpm -qi) and surely not being used by everything that uses gettext (mostly autogen.sh and source tarballs the GNU autotools chain) I'd suggest this dependency to be removed...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do not install either gettext or libgcj
2. download gettext-0.11.4-3.i386.rpm
3. rpm -i gettext-0.11.4-3.i386.rpm

Actual Results:  rpm cmplaind about missing dependency "libgcj.so.3"

Expected Results:  gettext surely works without libgcj, too.

The library dependancy is not something that set in spec file. It automatically add it 
whatever it requires in the code. I supsect is the gettext for java require that. I don't 
think we could delete java support.
