Well, I'd appreciate it if you'd use the cygwin patched source instead
of the unpatched upstream version.  Please download
gettext-0.17-11-src.tar.bz2 from the cygwin mirror system (you can use
setup.exe to install the source package if you like).

Then, use "cygport gettext-0.17-11.cygport almostall' to build and
"package" gettext for cygwin.

If you have the same error, then I'll try to reproduce (but I'm a bit
busy for the next few weeks)

debuggable version of ld, and set up just-in-time debugging (e.g. add to
your CYGWIN variable the following:
