First, thanks for your response.

Well, I didn't yet install kde4 and I don't intend to. (-:
Anyway, ldconfig -r | grep gettext shows only the following output:

        271:-lgettextpo.4 => /usr/local/lib/

I don't understand why it doesn't list since it is
installed by the port devel/gettext (gettext-0.17_1 is installed here)

I uploaded the whole config.log to
but I don't see any relevant messages concerning gettext...

But anyway, how did you solve the error you were getting? Do you think
just running ldconfig will help? Won't it spoil something important?
