I did not use --with-included-gettext. I tried with gettext 0.14.5 and gettext 0.16. However, configure decided that I ought to use the included gettext instead. It looks like the gettext from the "GTK+ for Windows" site doesnt define '_nl_msg_cat_cntr', which is what configure uses to determine if the gettext is the GNU version or not. Here's a bit from the configure.log.
