GNU Gettext built as a dependency of Bash
Until now Maneage used the host's GNU Gettext if it was present. Gettext is a relatively low-level software that enables programs to print messages in different languages based on the host environment. Even though it has not direct effect on the running of the software for Maneage and the lanugage environment in Maneage is pre-determined, it is necessary to have it because if the basic programs see it in the host they will link with it and will have problems if/when the host's Gettext is updated. With this commit (which is actually a squashed rebase of 9 commits by Raul and Mohammad), Gettext and its two extra dependencies (libxml2 and libunistring) are now installed within Maneage as a basic software and built before GNU Bash. As a result, all programs built afterwards will successfully link with our own internal version of Gettext and libraries. To get this working, some of the basic software dependencies had to updated and re-ordered and it has been tested in both GNU/Linux and macoS. Some other minor issues that are fixed with this commit - Until this commit, when TeX was not installed, the warning message saying how to run the configure step in order to re-configure the project was not showing the option `-e'. However, the use of this option is more convenient than entering the top-build directory and etc every time. So with this commit, the warning message has been changed in order use the option `-e' in the re-configure of the project. - Until now, on macOS systems, Bash was not linking with our internally built `libncurses'. With this commit, this has been fixed by setting `--withcurses=yes' for Bash's configure script.
