I have installed gettext from source (my distribution is from '95 ;-))
all is there especially msgfmt:

checking for LC_MESSAGES... (cached) yes
checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking whether included gettext is requested... no
checking for libintl.h... (cached) yes
checking for gettext in libc... (cached) yes
checking for msgfmt... (cached) /usr/local/bin/msgfmt
checking for dcgettext... (cached) yes
checking for gmsgfmt... (cached) /usr/local/bin/msgfmt
checking for xgettext... (cached) /usr/local/bin/xgettext

in plug-ins/perl/po/Makefile{.PL} there is a rule for " %.po" and a
target "update-gmo" but it seems that the latter wasn't called ...

a manual "make update-gmo" in plug-ins/perl/po works just fine and produces
all the missing *.gmo-files

I will look into it.

eine Übersetzung hat mich bei den Tips aber besonders gestört (vielleicht
auch noch woanders?)  "Selection" != "Selektion", viel besser ist "Auswahl"!
Vielleicht schaffe ich es in den nächsten Tagen mal einen Patch zu schreiben

I suggest (and maybe volunteer) for a list of technical terms with their
proper translations.  On the first hand this will ease posting to this
newsgroup without restarting gimp with LC_ALL=C ;-))
