[snip rest of useless rant]

Never come across this myself til now, but it seems there's a problem
in ports that touches Samba.  Probably related to your Samba install
complaining. From a ports tree updated just a while ago:

bash3-3.2.51 Dependency: gettext-0.17_1
gettext-0.17_1 Information for gettext-0.17_1:
lynx-,1 Dependency: gettext-0.18_1
mutt-devel-1.5.20_5 Dependency: gettext-0.18_1
popt-1.14_1 Dependency: gettext-0.18_1
samba34-3.4.5_1 Dependency: gettext-0.18_1
wget-1.12_1 Dependency: gettext-0.18_1

I guess it's a choice between bash working, or everything else working.
