Hi, Jordi, thank you for opening this bug.

Afaik you're mentioning the wrong license. The newest gettext does use
this Makefile.in.in (doubled .in!) header:

# Makefile for PO directory in any package using GNU gettext.
# Copyright (C) 1995-1997, 2000-2007 by Ulrich Drepper
<drepper at gnu.ai.mit.edu>
# This file can be copied and used freely without restrictions.  It can
# be used in projects which are not available under the GNU General Public
# License but which still want to provide support for the GNU gettext
# functionality.
# Please note that the actual code of GNU gettext is covered by the GNU
# General Public License and is *not* in the public domain.
# Origin: gettext-0.17
