With only gettext-lib installed, the build of ORBit fails because an m4
macro provided by gettext is not present. But the missing dependency is not
picked up:

===> Extracting for gnome-libs-1.2.8
===> Required executable msgfmt: /usr/bin/msgfmt found
===> Required executable gmake: /usr/pkg/bin/gmake found
===> Required package ORBit-*: NOT found
===> Verifying reinstall for ../../net/ORBit
===> Building for ORBit-0.5.6

Build ORBit with only gettext-lib installed?

Install gettext.
