You may be linking against the wrong libintl.  You should be
able to find which one defines libintl_dgettext by doing something

You could try running configure with

    --with-libpath=/usr/lib --with-incpath=/usr/include

to try and get gcc to use the system libintl.  By default, gcc will
prefer includes in /usr/local/include over those in /usr/include
and libraries in /usr/local/lib over /usr/lib.  This is probably
what is giving you problems.  If you have the Sun C compiler, you
could use that instead which doesn't have this brain damaged behavior.

If that doesn't help, try to find which lib libintl_dgettext
is in.  E.g.

/usr/ccs/bin/nm /usr/lib/libintl.so | grep libintl_dgettext


/usr/ccs/bin/nm /usr/local/lib/libintl.so | grep libintl_dgettext

I would expect it to be in /usr/local/lib/libintl.so.
