Hmm, yes, it seems that Mac OS X does not include gettext, its the  
same on my 10.5 install.  You can use the old build system in src/ 
configure.ac and get no translations or install gettext and use the  
new build system.  I suppose we need to add gettext detection to the  
new build system so it'll build without gettext.
