Yeah. Usually the advice is *not* to do this sort of thing, as ABI
version numbers are incremented for good reason. This is a special case
-- apart from anything else the ABI version here is going backwards...

This is a well-known problem to do with the split of the old gettext
port into gettext-runtime and gettext-tools. The fix in UPDATING says
to 'pkg delete -f gettext' before you start. However, seeing as you've
missed the opportunity to do that, you can fix things up now by:
pkg install -f gettext-runtime
