Dunno for sure. Obviously we have a problem
with make expecting something that's not there.
It's possible that:
1. You should just try to install gettext first,
and you will get more insight into the issue.
2. You could re-cvsup the ports tree and try
again and it would work.
3. You could issue
as root and see what happens next ;-)
It's obvious that I'm grasping at straws, but if
we wait around a while, somebody smarter will
likely pipe up ...
