git-gui: add a simple msgfmt replacement
The program "msgfmt" was our only dependency on gettext. Since it is more than just a hassle to compile gettext on MinGW, here is a (very simple) drop-in replacement, which Works For Us. [sp: Changed Makefile to enable/disable by the new NO_MSGFMT variable.] Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
