I am the maintainer for the git version of Midnight Commander. Since
the release of gettext 0.18.3, building midnight commander fails with
the following error:
configure.ac:497: error: required file 'intl/Makefile.in' not found
Makefile.am:4: error: required directory ./intl does not exist
lib/Makefile.am: installing 'config/depcomp'
parallel-tests: installing 'config/test-driver'
automake failed to generate Makefile.in
It seems that gettext is not creating the intl directory, which is
required by mc. If I downgrade to gettext 0.18.2.1 and try to build,
then it seems that the intl directory is properly created and the build
succeeds. My question is: since this change of behavior happens with the
latest version, is this a bug with gettext or with midnight commander?
I am not very familiar with gettext and I haven't been able to find any
relevant documentation on the internets so any insight would be very
