'The script' is part of Sugar (sugar-toolkit), sugar.activities.bundlebuilder so that folks (ideally learners) can hack on or create activities with working localisation hooks.
Simon, should we add gettext to the various Platform_Components pages? I'm not sure if it was part of the Fedora distro way back and since removed, or something that OLPC had added as part of their distro builds.
