I created my own makefile (cause I could Configure to work with

It seems gettext and friends requires a hardcoded compile-time 
GNULOCALEDIR  value. And no leading driveletter is allowed. 
How stupid can it get?

any software originated by Germans (Ulrich Drepper made gettext AFAIK).
All software suck sometimes. But GNU/FSF software tend to suck
