Sorry it took me a bit to reply, needed to hunt down a mirror of to check the source tarball of gettext-0.10.35.

OK, gettext.m4, while it should be located in /usr/share/aclocal (or
wherever your main aclocal directory is), comes with the gettext package,
rather than the automake package.  Specifically, you want the three m4
files from the gettext-0.10.35/m4 directory in the proper
<whatever>/share/aclocal directory.

Hmmm.  It is balking on gettextp.o, but I can't tell from your output if
it is having trouble compiling it or libtooling it.  What version of
libtool are you running?

All of these references should have been made in the intl directory prior
to getting to the src directory where it is failing.  Do you get any
errors or warnings there?

Of course not.  GNOME should work fine whatever the distribution or
platform.  At least, that's the goal.

Best of Luck,
