  Hm. Sorry, the compilation works OK. These messages show up during the
linking phase. So maybe it's a faulty libintl.a...

  No changes with: export LC_ALL=fr_FR :(

I've done some further investigations. Here are my results:

During the splash screen, the title is translated OK:
"Lancement de Gimp"
but nothing is printed above the progressbar and many plug-ins crach during
this time (I have to press 'E' at the console several time in order to actually
pass the initialisation phase).

Once I managed to have the main ToolBox shows but all the menu entries are
blank (only the shortcut shows up).

The 'tips-of-the-day' dialog doesn't show the tip and all its button are blank.
Its title is correctly translated though: "Conseil du jour GIMP".

The tooltips are correctly translated too.

It looks like every button, label and menu-entries are blank, where other part
of the interface (windows' titles, tool-tips, GtkFrame) are correctly

      Strange, isn't it?

      Any suggestions?
