Indeed, yes; (thanks for reminding me that I should have thought to
check that).

However, in the original gettext-0.18.3.2-2-mingw32-dev archive, I see
both libintl.a and libintl.dll.a, (the former a static library); using
that static variant will resolve those symbols without introducing any
dependency on libintl-8.dll at link time.  I consider it advantageous
to the majority of end users, that our distributed packages offer i18n
support where practicable, particularly so when the DLL dependency may
be avoided by the simple expedient of static linking with libintl.a,
(and maybe stripping the resultant EXE or DLL, since libintl.a appears
to include debugging info).
