When you run FEATURES="test" emerge sci-calculators/galculator, the test suite fails because there is a file that gettext does not know what to do. The path to this file can be added to POTFILES.skip because it's a generated from a lex/flex file and that lex file handled by gettext.

The change relevant for this bug is the addition of the src_prepare function. All the other changes is to support either GTK+2 or GTK+3 (I am on XFCE and prefer to stick with GTK+2, but I put +gtk3 in IUSE so it will default to gtk3)
