It took me a while to figure out what the problem was. The "no" from 
configure seems to be treated as gmsgfmt-command.

A cut from the output of configure:

checking whether catgets can be used... no
checking for msgfmt... (cached) no
checking for gmsgfmt... no
checking for xgettext... :
checking for catalogs to be installed...  cs da de es fr it ja nl pt 
pt_BR ro ru sk sl sr sv vi tr
checking for sane-config... /usr/local/bin/sane-config

The making of...
