po4a is all perl so this does not work.
What we would need is to either edit out every reference to 
Locale::gettext and dgettext, or somehow provide a fake Locale::gettext 
module. However it seems kind of ironical to me to disable localization 
in a tool meant to produce a localized version of the documentation: the 
first action means we don't care about localization and people who whant 
stuff in their language, while the second says we do. So I'd prefer to 
add a configure test to tell users which perl modules they are missing.
