There is the infamous intl/libintl.h -> intl/libgettext.h symlink.
This will be created if you ever configure Freeciv to use the included
gettext or if configure decides that your system's gettext is not good
enough.  Unfortunately, if you ever reconfigure Freeciv to use the
system's gettext, the symlink is not removed.  This results in the
wrong libintl.h being used.

The usual symptoms of this breakage are unresolved symbols a la
'dcgettext__' etc.  However, the gettext in glibc 2.2+ has had a lot
of changes compared to the included one, and there's no reason why you
shouldn't be able to get even more and more interesting breakage this
