  gettextized (0.11.3-pre2) and compilation fails for missing


I just did this
    gettextize --force --copy --intl

and my po/ChangeLog got this new entry:

2002-06-04  gettextize  <address@hidden>

        * Makefile.in.in: Upgrade to gettext-0.11.3-pre2.
        * Rules-quot: New file, from gettext-0.11.3-pre2.
        * boldquot.sed: New file, from gettext-0.11.3-pre2.
        * address@hidden: New file, from gettext-0.11.3-pre2.
        * address@hidden: New file, from gettext-0.11.3-pre2.
        * insert-header.sin: New file, from gettext-0.11.3-pre2.
        * quot.sed: New file, from gettext-0.11.3-pre2.
        * remove-potcdate.sin: New file, from gettext-0.11.3-pre2.

Then I went to my package root and did like so:

  aclocal; autoheader; automake; autoconf
         (NB: I first tried aclocal -I m4 as instructed, but it fails
with a duplicate macro error,
          because I have gettext-0.11.3-pre2 also installed on my system
as a system gettext)
  rm -rf build
  mkdir build
  cd build

and the compilation fails because it can't find ../po/config.status

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/prapp/ll/lifelines/build/intl'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/prapp/ll/lifelines/build/intl'
Making all in po

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/prapp/ll/lifelines/build'

I don't know anything about config.status -- I think it is
something generated automatically by either autotools or make,
and I never touch them (config.status files). Any suggestions ?

Of course, feel free to question me for any further details of
the system I did this test on.

I did not check in the gettextized (0.11.3-pre2) changes to my project,
but my current intl subdirectory (from 0.10.40) won't compile
if iconv is not present (perhaps it is not testing for HAVE_ICONV, or
else is going wrong), so I'm quite interested in upgrading. My thought
is that
I'd rather go to a newer gettext than debug an older one :)
