Thanks for the report, but it's a known issue.  See the comment in the
lang-bash script:

  # This test fails on MacOS X 10.5 because its 'bash' command is built with
  # an included intl directory without iconv support; hence it produces wrong
  # output when accessing any .mo file not generated from a .po file in UTF-8
  # encoding.

BTW, it's probably good to skip this test if the brokeness can be
easily detected at run time, though I have no idea how to do that.  Is
this still the case on Mac OS X 10.10?

The test failure means that the gettext bash support doesn't work with the
Mac OS X's default 'bash' command:


So, as long as other builds don't depend on the bash translation
feature, I think you don't need to worry about it.
