Dear listmembers,
dear Eric,
I tried your recommendation but doing this the apparently "harmless" warning 
turned to an error.
Following your advice I put the define into, what made the 
warnings vanish, however, if I do not forcibly enter the string

datarootdir = @datarootdir@

into intl/ and po/ something goes wrong with 
compilation. The locale - files do not end up where they ought to go, rather 
than /usr/share/locale things end up in /locale now. Obviously the 
datarootdir should be defined somehow and is required for compilation.

Is there a way to add some variable to that would define 
datarootdir so it is known to the gettext-structure?

So I think I have a chicken - egg issue - I cannot patch the files prior to 
running autoreconf because things get overwritten - but my system requires 
the path to be set so I have to patch the results of reautoconf afterwards.

Any further suggestions are highly appreciated,
thank you for your time,
take care

Dieter Jurzitza

if you really want to see the pictures above - use some font
