I've just built and installed fetchmail without either of your
modifications on NetBSD/i386 1.6L

I'm surprised that GNU_MAKE made a difference, since the definition we
have always used in pkgsrc is USE_GMAKE.

However, this looks like a buildlink problem (which has been fixed in
the meantime, as I was able to build this fine), which disabling nls
would work around by not building the library, rather than fixing. I
suppose my advice to you is to update and try again.
