Ahh, this might be fixed by this:

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gtypist.git/commit/?id=abea89ac6ea32275e00740cfcec3458531cb3062

The AM_GNU_GETTEXT macro (in configure.ac) should have been AM_GNU_GETTEXT(external), to specify that libintl was an external requirement (no local intl subdirectory exists).

Hi Brandon,

Thanks for the report! It looks like you submitted this and missed off some information at the end, though! I looked in to it, but I'm not entirely sure what the problem is.

I am not an expert on GNU autoconf/automake but the docs[1] seem to say that the AM_GNU_GETTEXT macro (in configure.ac) should add linker options to link against libiconv when it isn't already part of glibc. Is this not the case on your system?

The standard gtypist build system, as is, does not properly link to libiconv.

Relevant part of configure output:
