gettext and libiconv are not necesary anymore to build stellarium. I suppressed those dependencies to use Qt translate stuff instead.
gettext is required only to generate the .pot, but it's an external tool, and this doesn't need to be done on windows.

Oh yes I forgot to mention.  The "windows-cleanup" branch might not
compile with the plugins yet.  For the moment I focus on the core of
stellarium.  Later I will see if the plugins need modifications.  I
think a few are using non Opengl ES 2 api, that would prevent them
from compiling with ANGLE.

Ouch... I revert my changes for Angle Measure and Compass plugins :(

How you solve problem with gettext & libiconv for MSVC?
