What I would suggest you do is pkg_delete gettext, and do a pkg_add of
the old version (you might need to use a release branch, if you're
tracking stable), and then use *portupgrade* to rebuild just gettext. 

This wont solve your build problem, but it it will prevent your system
becoming flakey and then failing to boot into a working desktop, as
happened to me.

Portupgrade, unlike portmaster, preserves a copy of old libraries, so
software build against the old version will continue to work.
