To use you just need libintl2, but to compile at least gettext.
I'm not sure about gettext-devel since most source packages
ship with the "compiled" translations (the .mo or .gmo files),
but you need it for CVS. I suppose you may also need the
libiconv packages. There are checks for it in the configure

Better wait Charles or someone answer. Or install them and see

All those already are, but again, I don't know if it's
mandatory to use 1.5.x for new ports.

I see. Maybe the author could take a look, after all it also
happens on Linux writing to a FAT32 partition, what I do a lot.

I don't know how ncftp, wget, and others behave. I'll test once
I boot on Windows if nobody does.

Midnight Commander preserver them. I once asked the maintainer
