MSGFMT po/de.msg make: *** [po/de.msg] Error
make: *** [all] Error 2
So I did:
sudo make install
to use make with the environment variable NO_MSGFMT set to 1 (which bypasses the need to have gettext installed - so I guess it's not worth installing gettext). A bit of digging in google showed gettext can't understand the commandline arguments passed to it during git build - I haven't checked this out myself though.
