Looking at http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/html_node/autopoint-Invocation.html
it does seem that autopoint could be needed to build shadow, since
a AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION does show up in configure.in.

The autopoint dependency is probably usually satisfied due to
a Recommends in gettext, which in turn shadow does build-dep on.
However since it is only a recommends, this won't always be the

Nevertheless, when I dpkg -r autopoint on a wheezy chroot and
build shadow, the package succesfully builds.

Thomas, could you please tell us exactly how the build broke
for you without autopoint?  I.e show us the full build logs.
