gettext and libtool are not required by RTEMS nor by any of the tools
involved into RTEMS.

gm4 and gsed may be necessary on some platforms, because the native ones
shipped on some systems are too limited or broken for use with autoconf.

I have no idea why you need this, may-be the native patch is not able to
handle unified context diffs.

In addition to this, you will need a sufficiently good shell for RTEMS
and for the autotools, because some shells on some systems are known to
be severly broken and the auto*tools not having yet been adapted to
these shells' deficiencies 
(Known to be problematic at present time: Newer systems using zsh-3.0.x
and ash as default shells)
