I removed gettext and correctly got the very clear warning (with commit d474d4c8e1). Re-installing gettext solved the git configure/compile/install bug again.

So I closed bug #58248.

The check with an informative error message is now implemented in Commit d474d4c8e1.

I am now working on adding a check for `msgfmt' in `configure.sh'...

GNU Gettext (used for translating outputs of programs) is a dependency of some programs. In the basic set of programs, its a dependency of Git (as in bug #58248).

As found in that bug, currently we are just assuming that the host already has it, and we make a symbolic link to the host's version in the project. Which is not good.

So for now, we should add a check in the configuration script (for example where we check for `gcc') and tell the user to install it before continuing.

Ideally we should also build it in Maneage, we just haven't had the time yet.
