Without it none of the activity po files will be built at bundle install time, thus failing to create the locale directory binary .mo files. Without this, activity translations will not work. This appears to be a break going back to at least Soas Mirabelle.

Ouch, that is news to me, no wonder activity localization is broken. Can you point me to the thread/ticket/wiki with that discussion? Including the binary .mo locale files in the source and/or .xo bundles is, to the best of my knowledge, not the usual workflow for activity releases.
FWIW: when I yum installed gettext in Dextrose, it was just 2-3Mb I think, didn't pull in anything else other than gettext. Mirabelle was 5-6Mb and did pull in a few extra dependencies.
