Hi Pavel,
  I'm sorry for the spam. Actually I originally was almost sure the
problem with -lintl necessary to link mc from mc-4.5.55 was know, so I
searched the mc list archives for the problem with gettext unresolved. But
there were quite old messages regarding this, but it kicked me in the
right way to look for -lintl. Actually one of them was from you, that's
were I got your address. As I could not find any newer version of mc than
mc-4.5.55, I send an email to you. Yes, after even more attempts I found
it. So, that's how it happened.

Yes, configure --help.

Yes, I actually have no clue what's termnet and for what will I need it.
:( maybe configure would issue a warning that user asked for something
what's obsolete or suspicious to require. ;)

I don't mind if mc-4.6.0-pre1 or 4.5.55. Anything what will work.
