I use http://penma.de/code/gettext-stub/ which doesn't fix the problem, but does avoid it for my use cases.

Many moons ago I started a thread on here (or was it on freenode?) asking about lightweight alternatives to stuff and the need for a wiki page tracking them. I believe that at the time, the musl wiki was insufficiently combobulated, but it has since been fixed. The http://busybox.net/tinyutils.html page is old is stale and never really had good coverage, http://elinux.org/System_Size is sort of adjacent to the topic. If we do come up with anything, can we put it on a wiki page? Rob
