gnulib-tool emits a couple of notices that start with
"If you are using GNU gettext version 0.16.1 or older ..."

GNU gettext 0.17 was released in 2007, and according to
<https://repology.org/project/gettext/versions> all distros
(even CentOS 6) ship this version at least. So, by now we can
assume that everyone is using version 0.17 at least.

The user does not need to set XGETTEXT_OPTIONS for things that
AM_XGETTEXT_OPTION arranges for, automatically.
