gettext-tools configure error -

Hi pkgsrc-users:

I am trying to upgrade a pkgsrc tree and am running info a configure error in devel/gettext-tools (details below).  I searched the archives and saw some chatter about it, but either the stuff I found doesn't apply, or I don't understand the issue well enough to know that I am staring at the answer ( my apologies if this is the case ... :/ )     Same for the few results that Google turned up.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Currently, I am somewhat stuck ...

Here are the gory details:

Host:  Red Hat Enterprise Workstation 4 Release 6 (RHEL4u6)
pkgsrc metadata as of 1/2/2008
mk.conf says:  PREFER_PKGSRC=yes  (take pkgsrc over host for all dependencies where possible)
and there are no package specific overrides of this global setting

Here's the configure error:
===> Configuring for gettext-tools-0.14.6nb1
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for autoconf-lib-link
*** Error code 1

And the pertinent (AFAIK) stuff from src/gettext-tools/work/gettext-0.14.6/autoconf-lib-link/config.log:
configure:2292: checking for C compiler default output file name

configure:2337: error: C compiler cannot create executables

As near as I can tell, locale_charset should come from
$LOCALBASE/lib/ (which is there, and has a symbol "locale_charset" in it)
but for some reason, doesn't say that it needs (per ldd/readelf output).    -lcharset is not on the link command line for this test app, so of course, this test program fails.

Is this a known issue, am I missing a patch, etc?

Rather than fixing this in gettext-tools, I'm thinking (from devel/gettext-lib package) got built incorrectly and should list as a NEEDED shared library, so that client apps don't need to know to include -lcharset on their linker lines.   I grepped around in gettext-lib but didn't see any settings for this ...
How/where would I fix this?  Or is there a better place to fix it?  Or am I all washed up?

If anyone can send a patch or give me a hint on how/where to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.
