from /usr/ports/UPDATE, you need to rebuild all ports...

AFFECTS: users of devel/gettext (i.e.: YOU)
AUTHOR: ade at FreeBSD.org

  As a result of the upgrade to gettext-0.17, the shared library version
  of libintl has changed, so you will need to rebuild all ports that
  depend on gettext:

        # portupgrade -rf gettext
        # portmaster -r gettext\*

  Given the scope and sheer number of dependent ports, it may be more
  advisable to simply blow away all existing install ports (after
  keeping any local configuration changes), and rebuilding from scratch.

good luck!!
