# Unfuck gettextize. grep -v '/dev/tty' < /usr/bin/gettextize > gettextize chmod +x gettextize # Patches affect Makefile.am and configure.ac, so rerun autotools. ./gettextize -f autoreconf autoconf
Personally I’ve never known a single pair of packages that cause more trouble than GNU gettext and autoconf. Probably together they have wasted thousands of years of human effort. Configure scripts probably cause extra power stations to be built.
