Missing libintl.so.1 for Gnome2 build

I am trying to build Gnome2 on my system (FreeBSD 4.8), and keep
running into a problem. I'm getting the following error:

===> Building for pkgconfig-0.15.0
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libintl.so.1" not found

I see from some other archived messages that this has something 
to do with gettext, so I tried deinstalling and reinstalling
this, but no joy. I do have libintl.so and libintl.so.4, both
under /usr/local/lib. The archived messages also didn't allow me
to figure out what I need to do to get through this.

So, what do I need to do to get through this? Would be grateful for
any help, esp. since I had do remove Gnome1 to prep for this build
and am thus without any GUI desktop at the moment.
