I can't talk for everybody but I know that :

1- It once helped gnome-panel and inkscape to not crash at startup  
(this is now fixed)
2- Removing it from the aspell port will make EVERY GNUstep ports  
crash at startup
3- Removing it from the denemo port triggers some odd behaviours and  
does not work anyway.
4- cross/avr-gdb/Portfile:# without --disable-nls the build process  
also breaks

So much portfiles ... Um, that leaves about 25 ports out of 3887 with  
10 of them being gcc ports
