I'm changing the Makefile rule so that in this case it will report

archive.tar.gz is not in the CVS. Please copy the archive.tar.gz
from an already installed release to gettext-tools/misc/.

(I don't put archive.tar.gz into CVS because it's a large binary
file that is only changed when a release is made.)

CVS gettext (22/5/06) fails to compile

Executed configure with no parameters

make fails with message:
cp: cannot stat `/usr/local/share/gettext/archive.tar.gz': No such file or directory

That is $PREFIX/archive.tar.gz cannot be found

I had to
mkdir -p /usr/local/share/gettext/
cp /usr/share/gettext/archive.tar.gz /usr/local/share/gettext/
as root to get it to compile
