I am getting this error message:

*** error: gettext infrastructure mismatch: using a Makefile.in.in from gettext 
version 0.19 but the autoconf macros are from gettext version 0.18

Googling yields:

If you get an error message like *** error: gettext infrastructure mismatch: 
it means that a new GNU gettext release was made, and its autoconf macros were
integrated into Gnulib and now mismatch the po/ infrastructure. In this case,
fetch and install the new GNU gettext release and run gettextize followed by 

and my "gettext" is the latest release and I synced gnulib immediately before
stumbling on this problem.

What's wrong?  Do I need to install an older version of gettext?

$ gettext --version|head -n2
gettext (GNU gettext-runtime) 0.19.3
Copyright (C) 1995-1997, 2000-2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
$ autoconf --version|head -n2
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.69

I think the gettext copyright date is out of date.  It was released Oct this 

Thank you!
