I think it is a GDB specific issue.  relocatable.c depends on relocatable-lib.m4, which comes from the relocatable-lib Gnulib module:
and the file and the gl_RELOCATABLE_LIBRARY call are missing from the GDB source.

However, since the relocatable stuff does not seem to be used in GDB, maybe the easiest way is to just supply INSTALLPREFIX from the compiler command line?

(Closing for gettext now)

Checked with gettext-, INSTALLPREFIX is supplied through config.h.

But INSTALLPREFIX is not supplied in the gdb-7.4 packed intl version (see link on busybox/buildroot bug report).

And INSTALLPREFIX is not supplied in my version (git version from two years ago 0c5051a4709e3418091e5961a630f9955b58edda) after running autogen.sh. I do not know what makes the difference, autoconf/autoheader version?

If I understand correctly, INSTALLPREFIX is implicitly supplied through config.h.  Isn't it sufficient?

In case of PIC, INSTALLDIR and ENABLE_COSTLY_RELOCATABLE set, there needs to be INSTALLDIR and INSTALLPREFIX to be set/defined, but gettext-runtime/intl/Makefile.in fails to do so for INSTALLPREFIX.

Hit this case with buildroot and gdb-7.4 (containing a old version of intl), see https://bugs.busybox.net/show_bug.cgi?id=4868

Suggested patch attached.
