You probably want the most recent gettext from

I thought you had to install the various image libraries before
building imlib.

I thought there was an announcement on the main page saying this.  I
don't know what's happening with CVS, though.  It would be nice if we
could set up a mirror or something.

I think this is a problem with the snapshots.  There is a "support"
module that you have to unpack in each source directory.  The support
module includes (or should include) the macros and intl subdirs.
gnome-libs, gnome-core, etc require this stuff.

Sorry this is vague.  I haven't looked at the snapshots, so I don't
really know the names of the things.
