Hi Jeffrey,

For fixing your issue with gettext, you want to set the PATH variable, not 

Try this:

export PATH=$HOME/tmp/ok_to_delete:$PATH

You might need to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH for libraries, but the gettext binary 
will be found via the PATH variable.

For the failure due to lzip, you could simply remove the dependency by deleting 
the relevant line in bootstrap.conf. Lzip is only needed for building a 
distribution tarball so it's not really a dependency.
