configure message confusing

I have a couple observations in configuring libiconv-1.9.1.

I have Solaris 8 on a Sparc platform.

1. I do not have a compiler for c++ available. As libiconv configures I get
   these lines. 

      checking whether to build static libraries... yes
      configure: creating libtool
      appending configuration tag "CXX" to libtool
      checking whether the g++ linker (/binutils/bin/ld) supports shared 
libraries... yes
      libtool.m4: error: problem compiling CXX test program
      checking for g++ option to produce PIC... 

   This line "libtool.m4: error: problem compiling CXX test program" seems
   out of place in the middle of all the other lines. I am not sure if it is
   a problem or just a bit of extra output.

2. The output from configure also has the following lines

      checking whether NLS is requested... yes
      checking for msgfmt... no
      checking for gmsgfmt... :
      checking for xgettext... no
      checking for msgmerge... no

   The line for gmsgfmt seems odd to me.
