I think that error is from gencat. I have gencat (GNU libc) 2.3.2.
I worked around this by setting LANG=et_EE in my environment:
reed@puget:/usr/pkgsrc/shells/tcsh$ export LANG=et_EE

Also, I wonder if patch-ad should check for Linux too.
I was able to install and package after that LANG setting above.
I also depend on ncurses. What can we do instaed of just adding a ncurses
buildlink since others don't want it?
