See this thread:

In short, a proper fix is to bump AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION(...) in
configure.ac to 0.19.1 or later, either by hand or gettextize (or make
use of the newly introduced AM_GNU_GETTEXT_REQUIRE_VERSION macro).

That's unfortunate.  I'm adding the cpio maintainer to Cc, to notify
this issue.

Maybe the next gettext release should really fix the build
infrastructure of 0.19 in archive.dir.tar*.
