devel/gettext-0.14.6 fails to build in two ways, one of which is fixable.

gettext's gettext-tools/src/po-lex.h also requires a patch (as has been added 
to po-lex.c and indeed partially implemented in po-lex.h) to exclude the C99 
codepath if '__sgi' is defined, following the check for DECC:

-#if __STDC__ && (defined __STDC_VERSION__ && __STDC_VERSION__ >= 199901L && 
!defined __DECC)
+#if __STDC__ && (defined __STDC_VERSION__ && __STDC_VERSION__ >= 199901L && 
!defined __DECC && !defined __sgi)

This has been solved in gettext-tools by simply "#ifdef 0"'ing out the entire 

However, even with that change gettext's gettext-tools compiles but fails to 
link, stating that "po_gram_error_at_line" isn't defined - which is correct, 
because as-stands, the header defines it as extern, and it isn't defined 

In gettext-tools' po-lex.c, the varargs functions are built as the condition 
has been changed to '#if 1' - but making the similar change to gettext itself 
again results in errors and a build failure.

(Also, as of now, gettext-tools is at 0.14.6nb1 and gettext is at 0.14.6.  
Building gettext-tools causes a fatal error stating that there is a circular 
dependency between gettext and gettext-tools, whereas building gettext goes and 
builds gettext-tools-0.14.6nb1, then returns to build gettext at which point it 
says that a package named gettext-tools should be installed but isn't.

I fixed this by changing the DEPENDS line in gettext's Makefile to 

However, having said all of this, if I copy po-lex.* from gettext-tools to 
gettext, then it compiles cleanly and passes its test-suite, except for:

../../gettext-runtime/libasprintf/  not found
libtool: link: cannot find the library 
`../../gettext-runtime/libasprintf/' or unhandled argument 
FAIL: lang-c++

(which may an issue with the build-environment rather than the code itself)

I can't see any difference in the (corrected) source between the two trees, so 
I imagine that I also copied over the pre-compiled object file, and that was
