Uhh, this indicates problems in the configuration logic of gettext.
Could you please show the warnings (with filename and line numbers)?

This is harmless. The test fails because a locale is not installed.
In the next version the test will say SKIP instead.

This is more serious; it indicates that using gettext() from within C++
code won't likely work on your machine. The reason is maybe a <libintl.h>
file that override gettext's <libintl.h> file.

Other than that, the tests succeeded, so you can install the package
without worries.
