AFAIK (and I really don't care to waste more time studying), unless
you stick strictly to the default, you'll have to hardcode the prefix.

"no leading driveletter is allowed" just says that the gettext package
has not been ported to cygwin/ming, or it has been, but you don't have
that port installed on your system.

Right, I don't think there is any kind of environment variable to
"override" anything.  (This is unconfirmed.)  As I say above, you'll
probably have less problems if you just compile in the path _prefix_.

Did you actually try removing the "\locale" you had?  I think gettext
will look in $PREFIX/locale/$LANG/LC_MESSAGES.  AFAIK, from "/locale"
down is hardcoded, which makes me also wonder how it's going to do the
"\" <=> "/" conversion.  Anyway, if you have "g:\MingW32\share\locale"
defined as the prefix, gettext would look in "g:\MingW32\share\locale
\locale\da\LC_MESSAGES", i.e., "locale" would be duplicated.  ^^^^^^^
NLS is nice, so I would suggest one last try.  Three issues: the port,
hardcode (versus variable), prefix (not name).
