The patch conflicts seem to have been fixed by the recent push with commit f7d3edbb. Closing.

I am unable to build gettext (mingw-w64 or gcc) from GIT repository sources. It appears that gnulib-local is for an older gnulib branch. Similar issue with libiconv that I posted (http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?37567).

Tried removing offending diff files (not sure if these are correct):

rm gnulib-local/lib/hash.c gnulib-local/lib/hash.h \
gnulib-local/lib/alloca.in.h gnulib-local/lib/basename.c \
gnulib-local/lib/closeout.c gnulib-local/lib/closeout.h \
gnulib-local/lib/gettext.h gnulib-local/lib/hash.c gnulib-local/lib/hash.h \
gnulib-local/m4/hard-locale.m4.diff gnulib-local/m4/quotearg.m4.diff \
gnulib-local/m4/quote.m4.diff \
gnulib-local/lib/error.h.diff gnulib-local/lib/progname.h.diff \
gnulib-local/lib/getopt.in.h.diff gnulib-local/lib/obstack.h.diff \
gnulib-local/modules/fnmatch.diff gnulib-local/modules/quotearg.diff \
gnulib-local/modules/regex.diff gnulib-local/lib/fnmatch_loop.c.diff

After doing so I get an error in autogen.sh:

gnulib-lib/Makefile.am:57: error: GL_GENERATE_ALLOCA_H does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL

But GL_GENERATE_ALLOCA_H can be found in gnulib/m4/alloca.m4:

gnulib/m4/alloca.m4:39: AM_CONDITIONAL([GL_GENERATE_ALLOCA_H], [test -n "$ALLOCA_H"])

If I ignore this issue then I get the following error near the completion of configure (but I'm obviously not surprised given above):

config.status: error: cannot find input file: `intl-java/Makefile.in'
