Gerrit, Karl,
Thanks, you've found a problem that has bugged several people (and me too!). 
The implementor of the gettext stuff in indent had added several AC_DEFINES 
that should never have been there. I've cleaned that up and it will be 
working properly in the next release (famous last words ...).

The fault is indeed in the configure.ac file, which is used during the 
pre-release stuff. I've received several translations from the GNU 
Translation Team as well so I guess it makes sense to get a new release out 
some time soon.

NB it is impressive how quickly the Translation Team works, and I hadn't even 
asked them!
