While I don't see this one, for me gettext-tools stalls at the end in 
the install phase in the line

  /sw/bin/ginstall -c -m 644 ./gettext.info 

Activity Monitor shows that it is /sw/bin/grep that hangs, and it hangs 
in the same function of libintl.8.dylib as /sw/bin/gtar did. In fact 
(always running as root under "su -"), the following command hangs, too

sudo -u fink-bld /sw/bin/grep fink /sw/bin/fink

One can make it work by inserting "env LANG=C".

If Fink's grep is not installed, then building gettext-tools succeeds.

The conclusion is that anything that links to libintl.8.dylib will hang 
during fink package building if fink is run from root started by "su -". 
Inserting "env LANG=C" preventively into all these commands won't be easy.
