I did a quick search and I'm not sure that many packages use both
intltool and wxWidgets!

Some packages such as vlc use both the gettext M4 stuff and wxWidgets,
but not intltool (they translate .desktop files manually). Other
packages ship with libintl and maybe use it instead of Free/NetBSD's

Anyway, the intltool M4 code essentially looks for _GNU_ gettext, and
if it doesn't find it, it installs in /usr/lib, which apparently isn't
standard for FreeBSD's gettext - so there's a bug in intltool (do you

Would you mind reporting this to
? I used v0.40 to bootstrap './configure'.
