[New-bugs-announce] [issue14353] Proper gettext support in locale module

Mel Flynn report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Mel Flynn <rflynn at acsalaska.net>:

Gettext support in Python is configured by two tests:
- textdomain in libc or libintl
- bind_textdomain_codeset in libc only

The latter causes incomplete gettext support in the locale module. Since the implementation uses two different defines, the provided patch provides them and also ensures they exist.

The issue is not present in 3.x branches, as only a single test is done for full gettext support in locale.
