I was not able yet to test this teh same. But I am now building 
gettext-runtime with two changes:

I set PREFER.native+=gettext in my mk.conf and
commented out USE_BUILTIN.gettext in the Makefile.

But in your case with defaults, the USE_BUILTIN.gettext forces you to use 
the pkgsrc version and that forces the gettext-lib to be installed as far 
as I can understand this.

Do you have gettext-lib installed? (I assume you do.)

Sorry I can't help a lot right now.

Can you please send-pr this problem? (Submit to GNATS PR database.) And 
then hopefully someone can work on this.

(If someone can provide me with a login to a test environment I can spend 
a little time on this.)
