Description of problem:
built glade application and cannot get it to complete the autogen.sh process.
when i try to use a regular makefile, I run into
errors for libintl.h ---it doesn't like the __const in that file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
build application with glade and can't autogen.sh
Steps to Reproduce:
1.build glade app, generate files, do autogen.sh or make simple gtk+ app and
makefile and try to compile.
Actual Results: get the autogen.sh dies. the gtk+ app the errors all involve
libintl.h and the __const definitions in it...
As an aside, experts in GTK programming unanimously recommend using Glade with
libglade, rather than using glade to generate code.
I have the same problem with the glade packaged with redhat 9. Glade has had
this problem for the last several releases of redhat; it would be nice if a
working version is included in the next release. Here is what I get when I run
autogen.sh provided by glade:

Please use AM_GNU_GETTEXT([external]) in order to cause autoconfiguration
to look for an external libintl.
Please create po/Makevars from the template in po/Makevars.template.
You can then remove po/Makevars.template.
Please run 'automake m4/Makefile' to create m4/Makefile.in
Please run 'aclocal -I m4' to regenerate the aclocal.m4 file.
You need aclocal from GNU automake 1.5 (or newer) to do this.
Then run 'autoconf' to regenerate the configure file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from
You might also want to copy the convenience header file gettext.h
from the /usr/share/gettext directory into your package.
It is a wrapper around <libintl.h> that implements the configure --disable-nls

Newer glade may well fix this as I don't think it uses gnome-common anymore.
Works fine with glade2-2.5.0 in FC2.
