Hi all

I'm compiling git from source code on a mashine without msgfmt. This leads to compile errors. To be able to compile git I created a patch that at least works for me:


diff -Naur ../git-2.14.1.orig/Makefile ./Makefile
--- ../git-2.14.1.orig/Makefile 2017-08-09 21:54:31.000000000 +0200

It would be great if it (or something similar) could be included in git.
