You need to slow down, think, understand the issue, and if there is an
issue, to fix it.

You need not to blindly jump to action just because portlint croaks
about something.

My advice from looking at the port is just to ignore the warning. You
can't possibly build this port without gettext (gtk20 is in the
dependency hierarchy), so no need to bother recording explicit gettext
dependency in the Makefile.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
