[bug-gettext] Missing msgfmt

Hey list,

On some systems, msgfmt is not supplied by gettext-base package, but is
found in the separate package gettext (e.g. Debian Wheezy). 

I am using AM_GNU_GETTEXT macro in my configure.ac. I note during
configure time that there does appear to be a check for msgfmt, but no
error is raised if the binary is not detected. This is a problem for my
build which depends on it during compilation time.

How can I change this behaviour to indicate a configure time failure? I
could have added a manual check for the tool, but it seemed redundant
with AM_GNU_GETTEXT's check, but not enforcement, so I'm going to guess
the macro is probably setting a variable somewhere I can check?
