By 'concrete examples' I was hoping for build logs, setup, etc.  It's
quite hard to figure out what the problem is without the ability to
reproduce it or see any data.

That said, piecing together information from various mails, I think
what you're saying is that, despite the correct tool being pulled into
tools/bin, the /usr/bin/g* version is being chosen by configure first,
rendering our $PATH ordering irrelevant.

That doesn't explain the request to add more USE_TOOLS (if they were
missing then we should see failures on SmartOS?), but a simple
solution for this should just be that we add some TOOLS_ALIASES to, i.e.:

diff --git a/mk/tools/ b/mk/tools/
index b8d3b80..977a59e 100644
--- a/mk/tools/
+++ b/mk/tools/
@@ -148,6 +148,7 @@ TOOLS_DEPENDS.${_t_}?	=${_TOOLS_DEP.gettext-tools}:../../devel/gettext-tools
 TOOLS_CREATE+=	${_t_}
 TOOLS_PATH.${_t_}=	${TOOLS_PREFIX.${_t_}}/bin/${_t_}
+TOOLS_ALIASES.${_t_}=	g${_t_}
 .    endif
 .  endif

This will create g-prefixed symlinks in .tools/bin for all the gettext
tools, and should ensure they get picked before the native versions.

If I'm still misunderstanding the problem, it might be best to hop
onto Freenode/#pkgsrc IRC rather than going back and forth via the
list any further.
