This should address your issues with sysutils/coreutils being around,
and gettext picking up on gmkdir.
In addition, as part of the ongoing cleanup of the tree as a result
of the deprecation of 4.x for the ports world, devel/gettext will now
FAIL (strangely) on 4.x. This is on purpose, and I have no plans to
change things back. I'm not even going to put in a "BROKEN on 4.x"
stanza, since work is underway to remove those from the tree.
Naturally, with the number of ports depending on devel/gettext, this
will be a pretty good sledgehammer blow.
Assuming no further issues, I will be committing this update on or
around 1st March 2007.
Thanks to everyone who has provided input on this patch to date.
