This is installed by  the devel/gettext port.  It is probably installed
in your machine (most ports depend on it)  but something may have gone
wrong during a portupgrade.

/usr/ports/UPDATING states the following for gettext upgrades:

  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

I suggest you try one of these commands. (Check with 'pkg_info -Ix
gettext' first to see what gettext you are running)
