You are aware of this patch, right?
I might not be reading that patch right, but AFAICT that still assumes
that GNU gettext is available (either in libc or as a seperately
installed package). On most non-GNU systems that isn't the case, and
even if you install it on OpenBSD using the port, it will not be found
since the system compiler doesn't search in /usr/local by default.
We currently have at least six bug reports of people trying to build
GDB 6.3, where things fail (in bfd/) because libintl.h cannot be
found. I think it is safe to conclude that removing intl/ from the
distribution was a mistake since GDB no longer builds out of the box
on most pristine non-GNU systems. IIRC we removed intl/ only to fix
problems on non-GNU systems. Looks like it breaks far more systems
than it fixes. We should really release a GDB 6.3.1 with intl/ added
back in. I'm sorry that I didn't notice this before, but I simply
never removed intl/ from my local source tree, so I didn't notice the
