Unfortunately that patch makes it impossible to compile XBoard for people that have gettext 0.17 (= me).

The only solution seems to be to install gettext 0.17 before you configure, as apparently autoconf is not smart enough to check which gettext version you have installed, and adapt the requested gettext version to that by itself.

error is:

      • error: gettext infrastructure mismatch: using a Makefile.in.in from gettext version 0.17 but the autoconf macros are from gettext version 0.18
