caveat: i haven't tried this, i'm not sure if it works.
get gettext.m4 from GNU gettext distribution, and put it into
even if you install pkgsrc/devel/gettext, it only gives you redundant
binaries (/usr/bin/msgfmt and /usr/pkg/bin/msgfmt), nothing more.
i believe it's harmless.
or are you saying you cannot build pkgsrc/devel/gettext by some reason?
