I am having trouble installing elm from ports, I get this message:
/usr/libexec/elf/ld: cannot find -lintl
*** Error code 1
I did a google search and people have been experiencing this problem a
lot when building packages from ports lately.
Someone recommended upgrading the ports as this has supposedly been
I upgraded my ports tree with cvsup, and tried building again, but get
the same error.
Someone recommended I install gettext-old, as quoted here:
" Any ideas ?

so I searched in my ports collection, and cannot find a gettext-old
package. I also searched through the ports collection on FreeBSD.org and
cannot find any packages called gettext-old.
I am at a dead end. Anyone have any ideas here? I am running FreeBSD
4.8 Release. Thanks.
