This is because autoreconf is calling gettextize, instead of autopoint.
I have inspected autoconf's changelog, and find out they "fixed" this
between 2.53 and 2.54. What autoconf are you using?

When you upgrade autoconf, it will whine about gettext being old. You
can just change the version requireemnt down to 0.11.4 in
AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION in your tree then, and it should be well.

Yeah, gettextize sucks :(

This is evil. And a bug, I guess.

So, try updating autoconf a bit first, to 2.54 or later.
If you can't, there are other alternatives, like using the old with the manual calls.
