That doesn't help for xtraceroute.

From the config.log:

configure:2460: checking for xgettext
configure:2500: cc -o conftest -O2   -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/pkg/lib conftest.c  1>&5
/tmp/ccf09QXp.o: In function `main':

configure: failed program was:

int main() {
extern int _nl_msg_cat_cntr;
                               return _nl_msg_cat_cntr
; return 0; }

There is no -lintl in the link line. So it can't find _nl_msg_cat_cntr.
