   |  I don't have a NetBSD, so just a wild guess - does adding intltool

 No, no change at all.
 Given that this obviously isn't just a trivial fix (most PLIST type
 errors are, so I rarely look at the actual cause when I see one, I just
 report it and leave it to the maintainer) I have taken a closer look
 at the config.log
 From that, using NLS depends upon finding what it considers to be
 a usable gettext
 In the config.log I see ....
 configure:23554: checking for GNU gettext in libc
 configure:23584: cc -o conftest -O2 -I/usr/include -I/usr/include -L/usr/lib 
-Wl,-R/usr/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib conftest.c  >&5
 conftest.c:140: error: size of array 'array' is negative
 configure:23591: $? = 1
 The only relevant part of the test program they include seems
 to be ...
 | #define __GNU_GETTEXT_SUPPORTED_REVISION(major) ((major) == 0 ? 0 : -1)
 | #endif
 | typedef int array [2 * (__GNU_GETTEXT_SUPPORTED_REVISION(0) >= 1) - 1];
 This (to me) indicates that either __GNU_GETTEXT_SUPPORTED_REVISION is
 not defined, or that its value is 0 when called with an arg of 0, ether
 way would produce a negative array size.
 Perhaps the NetBSD include gettext in NetBSD 4.0 is not of a sufficiently
 new ersion, and the package needs to specify that either the pkgsrc version
 of gettext is required, or at least what version is needed, so the pkgsrc
 version can be required if the system version is too old (remember NetBSD 4.0
 is 3 or 4 years old now, so nothing include in it is going to be very
 up to date).
