That depends on whether the incompatible implementations do not also
define this macro. The NetBSD libintl.h header does not seem to do so.
However I'm not sure about Solaris. According to the man page its
libintl.h does define GNU_GETTEXT_SUPPORTED_REVISION but it's not clear
whether or not __USE_GNU_GETTEXT is also defined.

It can't hurt to ask on the gettext list.
