Later that night, I delved into the makefiles and found
--with-included-gettext, which, if supplied, allows these functions to
compile, but then I ran across the same problem while building bison.
Again, the --with-included-gettext solves the problem, but it led me to
suspect that the real problem wasn't either package, but _configure_.

I'm not sure I understand all the magic behind autoconf, but it seems that
the real issue may be that, although configure is finding gettext() in
-lintl, it forgets to include -lintl in the final LIBS definition.

This is not an issue on Solaris 5.6 and above, because the gettext()
functions are in libc on those releases.
