These build instructions work on all glibc systems:

   $ tar xvfz gettext-0.14.2.tar.gz
   $ cd gettext-0.14.2
   $ ./configure --prefix=/tmp/foobar
   $ make
   $ make check         # ignore Java related failures (gcj bugs)
   $ make install

If it doesn't work for you, please check the contents of your config.site,
if any.

Possible other causes of the failure (this is just guesswork, since you
didn't pass on enough information to determine the cause of the failure):
  - use of a nonstandard libc, such as uclibc,
  - use of a modified gettext-0.14.2 (probably not - you were saying you
    were using an unpatched gettext-0.14.2),
  - application of buggy build instructions such as the one found at
