I recently discovered that the vmware-tools package is compiled against
libintl.so.8 -- yes, this is probably something that should be fixed at
the vmware level, but VMware's love for FreeBSD isn't there.
As a workaround, it might be useful to have a port which compiles an older
version of libintl (potential security issues notwithstanding, since it's
assumed it will only be used by this one tool).
This seems to me to be somewhat *less* destabilizing than the
commonly-suggested (and perhaps, oft-used) suggestion of symlinking
/usr/lib/libintl.so.8 --> libintl.so.9
