If I understand correctly, it was miscompiled some long time ago and
nobody listened to fabled:

main/gettext: fix build
- add patch to maintain abi now that build is done right
fix-abi can be removed when all reverse dependencies have been
rebuilt and have no libintl_*printf* symbols in them
I don't know if Alpine has any sort of infrastructure for searching
symbols within all packages. (I would doubt it.) If so, that would be
an easy way to see. If not, it is probably safe and definitely
something I could see as a release goal for 3.9.
Yes, I will propose it as a release goal for 3.9.

By this I assume you mean "to glib", which is my intention. Or do you
mean "to Alpine until glib accepts them"?

It literally crashes when you run a utilty; the only reason this works
at all is because most Makefiles ignore errors from it. Honestly, I
should try to fix this properly before upstreaming it. That was a "get
alpha3 out the door" patch.
Oh, gross. I guess we keep it in our tree for now.

I can put a commit to fix this in adelie-integration, but do note that
at least libtool, apr-util, and apr need to be rebuilt because libtool
keeps a copy of the path to grep in it (and apr-util has a private copy
of libtool which needs to be kept in sync with apr's build-1).
Lets postpone this until next week. We have some runway until
version-freeze for 3.8, and most of the 3.8 goals slipped due to

I wouldn't even know where to begin.
I will look into it.
