autogen fails on FreeBSD 8.1:

checking for ngettext in libc... no
checking for bindtextdomain in -lintl... no
checking if -liconv is needed to use gettext... 
checking for ngettext in -lintl... no
checking for ngettext in -lc... no
checking for ngettext in -lintl... (cached) no
configure: error: I haven't found a working ngettext function in your
Try --disable-nls. Read ABOUT-NLS.

configure failed

GNU gettext is installed:
> pkg_info | grep gettext
gettext-0.18_1      GNU gettext package

It works fine with --disable-nls.

I have a suggestion, the string:
"Now type 'make' to compile freeciv."
should be replaced. On systems other than GNU 'gmake' has to be run, as the
makefiles are GNUmakefiles.
