Any idea at all what this is?  How I might work around it?

This is good info to know.  Thanks.

I guess I was a bit too optimistic about all this.  Should I be working
on getting the po directory to compile first, and then go to Lynx?  The
intl directory seemed to successfully compile, which maybe got my hopes
up too high.

The rest of this is WAY beyond my capabilities.  Other than join the
address@hidden, which I did, is there anything I can be doing?  I'll have to
do much of the work on SunOS4.1.3, at least initially.  Later I will get
back on to the Solaris2.6 available to me.

So this is how to make the *.gmo file?  Where do you come by msgfmt?

I assume all of this can be done within my $HOME directory?

If you have any hints, throw'em my way.  I'm totally lost.
